Another tragic case of denial and mismanagement of Lyme disease in Ontario using knowingly inaccurate tests to deny diagnosis and treatment.

“From the outside, twenty-eight-year-old Jason Bailey from Ontario seemed to have it made. Born in Brampton, he moved with his mother and younger brother to Orillia after his parents separated. One of two boys raised by a single parent, Jason had your typical Canadian childhood full of outdoor activities and competitive sports. He played AAA hockey through the winters and Lacrosse through the summers. Playing for the Brampton Excelsiors, Brampton Battalion, Orillia Kings, and The North Central Ontario Predators.

    It’s a shame that doctors are not taught the well-known limitations of serological testing for Lyme and are not taught properly how to diagnose the disease clinically. At best the test misses 1/3 of those who truly do have the disease. Serological testing wasn’t considered good enough for Covid, Zika and West Nile. In fact, physicians are taught that the test is highly accurate at all stages of the disease and patients get better even if they are not treated. Physicians will study the test results rather than listen to the patient. All this so the long-term insurance disability industry can remain profitable. The worst thing you can do for a patient is give them a false negative test result. There are no FDA approved tests for Lyme disease.
