LymeTV thinks that all medical schools should have a full semester dedicated to the dangers of tick-borne diseases, as well as inform doctors of the science behind testing, early diagnosis, & clinical symptoms. We hope to one day help facilitate this necessity as standard practice.
Besides protecting yourself from ticks, LymeTV wants to strongly urge you to always be your own health advocate. Regardless of your health history, advocate & research your illnesses from scientifically-based sources, & give the information to your doctor if you feel something is not right. In our experience, doctors have appreciated when we brought them the reputable research & took the time to explain in-depth about tick-borne disease epidemiology, & the pharmacokinetics behind how different drugs (i.e. tetracyclines vs cephalosporins - and combos of) work with these diseases. We want to arm patients (& doctors) with the latest & most robust clinical research so doctors can consider diseases that may have been overlooked or misdiagnosed, & thereby increase the probability of the patient getting properly treated. We definitely believe more awareness & knowledge needs to be incorporated throughout the medical community so patients may get treated early & properly for all overlapping diseases they have.
We are not a research facility; we are strictly an awareness organization. We will only share information from reputable, scientifically-based sources.
