Early Diagnosis for Lyme Disease

Early Diagnosis for Lyme Disease

According to CDC, the Center for Disease Control, Lyme disease affects over 300,000 Americans each year. It is currently the fast growing infectious disease spreading all over the United States. Initially, Lyme disease started in the east coast, however, with the growth of the disease it has now spread throughout the country.

Back in the 1970s, many children and adults fought Lyme disease without treatment. These people suffered with inflammation in the joints, rashes, headaches, chronic fatigue, and more. Many of these patients did not get the appropriate diagnoses, therefore, did not receive the proper treatment.

Researches finally learned that the cause of Lyme disease is by the bacterium called Borrelia Burgdorferi. Lyme disease today is diagnosed by a combination of Lyme disease testing and symptoms. In some cases, a bull’s eye rash appears on the skin, which is usually a marker for early signs of Lyme disease.

A current study in New London is underway to develop methods of detecting Lyme disease earlier. In order to detect the disease and diagnose the patient to have the proper treatment in the earlier stage of the disease, a series of testing must be done. Patients that are participating in the study have the bull’s eye rash or have been recently bitten by a tick and have not taken any antibiotic treatments.
