Review of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence in UK guidelines for Lyme disease

[CanLyme Note: NICE in the UK, similar to the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) is given statutory distinction.  NICE published Lyme disease guidelines using their legislated privilege.  In Canada, the Association of Medical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (AMMI) and PHAC have openly supported the NICE guidelines.

Illinois expands insurance coverage for those with tick-borne diseases and children requiring EpiPens

[CanLyme Note: Yet another U.S. state ignores the baseless dogma of the private group the Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA), that chronic treatable active infection does not exist after 3 weeks of antibiotics. Chronic treatable active infection does exist, is devastating, and requires long-term antibiotics just as many diseases do.  The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) blindly follows the Continues →

[CanLyme note: Very important in the article is recognition by the Infectious Disease physician author is that there is no good definition for Lyme disease, no good tests, and no biomarkers for B. burgdorferi or for PTLDS (post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome) which is a made-up term not based in science. No one knows when you have been effectively treated and there Continues →
