Finding a Doctor that knows how to  treat Lyme Disease

ILADS' Position Paper on the CDC's Statement Regarding Lyme Diagnosis "The Center for Disease Control's (CDC) position on diagnosing Lyme disease (LD) is an oversimplification  of a complicated clinical condition.  The CDC's two tiered approach using an ELISA and confirming positives by both IgM and IgG Western blots--potentially misses more than 40% of the patients. One year after the tick bite, this percentage may be greater than 50%. "  "Lyme disease is a problematic diagnosis. The position adopted  by the CDC makes it more complicated."
