Robert Hedaya, Psychiatry, answeredThere are raging political-economic wars around Lyme disease, that have nothing to do with science. The Connecticut attorney General recently removed the mask of science from the IDSA (Infectious Disease Society of America), ordering this influential and prestigious group to reassess their guidelines for diagnosing and treating Lyme disease because they were selective in their consideration of the evidence, perhaps eliminated some with dissenting opinions from the committee, etc. Because of the IDSA's refusal to look at all the data and pursue the facts, many doctors are losing their licenses as medical boards and insurance companies target physicians who practice outside of the "standard of practice."Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
