Definition of Chronic Lyme Disease
Let The Joyous News Be Spread...
The Wicked Old Witch At Last Is Dead!
May 9, 2017- Today, CHRONIC Lyme disease is officially OFFICIAL! Dr. Raphael Stricker, et. al. published a study medically describing and defining CHRONIC Lyme Disease. According to the IDSA/CDC there has been and is no such thing as CHRONIC Lyme disease- but NOW there IS!
It was said by the IDSA (and their friends in the insurance industry who want to save money any way possible) that there is "no definition of chronic Lyme in the medical literature", therefore it doesn't exist. A groundbreaking study has now detailed and defined chronic Lyme disease, opening doors for additional treatment for those who failed to recover after their initial short term course of antibiotics.
Quote- "According to this definition, CLD is a multisystem illness with diverse musculoskeletal, neuropsychiatric and/or cardiovascular manifestations that result from ongoing infection with pathogenic members of the Borrelia spirochete complex often associated with other tickborne disease (TBD) pathogens.
To qualify for the diagnosis of CLD, patients must have Lyme- compatible symptoms and signs that are either consistently or variably present for six or more months. Two subcategories of CLD include untreated chronic Lyme disease (CLD-U) and chronic Lyme disease following a limited course of antibiotic treatment (CLD-T)."
