July 19th, 2018

Excellent work is being done at the University of Guelph and we at CanLyme encourage people to participate…

“The University of Guelph is currently recruiting participants for a study jointly offered by researchers in the Department of Population Medicine, and the G. Magnotta Lyme Disease Research Lab. The study (REB # 18-05-008) will examine the interactions that patients and families have with healthcare providers in the process of diagnosing and / or managing Lyme disease in Canada. The concept of ‘client-centred care’ describes the partnership between the patient and his/her healthcare providers, continuity and consistency of care, respect, and knowledge exchange. This study will use questionnaires to evaluate the ‘client-centred care’ that patients received, as well as the symptoms and functional impairment they experienced. The goal is to identify areas for improvement in the delivery of health care in Canada. The study is open to anyone in Canada who is 19 years of age or older, fluent in English, capable of providing consent, and has / had Lyme disease (diagnosed in Canada or internationally). For more information, or to enrol in the study, please email gmlstudy@uoguelph.ca .”

    I’ve been tested twice for Lyme Disease (Elisa) and the results were negative. I did have the Bull’s eye rash, which is an indicator that I have Lyme disease. I did receive 2 weeks of antibiotics but soon after completing the antibiotics, I experienced symptoms. Since the ER visit for the bite, my life has changed drastically health wise. I would be interested in your study.

    I recently tested positive for Lyme disease, but probably contracted the disease awhile back. I did not have the Bulls eye rash. I am not getting any treatment because of what my physician says is a lack of knowledge re Lyme disease and the only specialist in the city has a one year waiting list. I have also been diagnosed with lupus. Do I have both diseases? Or one and not the other. My understanding is that the two can easily be mixed up. Not terribly reassuring. I have been increasingly unwell. I am very interested in this study.

  3. I was tested for lyme disease and the results were positive. I had the bull’s eye rush and I took three week antibiotic. Beside of that I still feel the pain in my knees and I have pronlems standing up. I went to the hospital in Montreal but the doctors don t know what to do anymore…
