Lyme-related News from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
The CDC has now formally and officially recognized that Lyme Disease may cause chronic conditions. This is nothing new to many members of NC Lyme Disease Foundation who have suffered the chronic effects of Lyme (and other tick-borne illnesses) for many years. However, this is a big step forward in eventually treating the chronic effects of Lyme. Here is the link to the CDC website for the listing - Chronic Symptoms Following Infections | What We Do | NCEZID | CDC. We welcome the CDC’s recognition of the issue and look forward to their development and approval of treatment regimens for chronic illness including that related to Lyme Disease.
