I wrote a wonderful update this morning and low and behold I lost it somehow as my website locked up and poof. So here is a second try.
I am honored to be asked to sit in on the Conference call with Ahope4lyme,inc (www.ahope4lyme.org) President Linda Wales for this session of the PALRN (Pennsylvania Lyme Resource Network) www.palyme.org. The PALRN organization has been ask to represent and develop the needed education arm for educating the people of Pa. There was a lot talked about that would be premature to report but there is a take away that I would like to share.
When suspecting that you are suffering with a Tick related issue and your Doctor is planning on treating you. You can now say HERE, This is a site at the NGC (National Guidelines Clearinghouse)at: https://www.guideline.gov/summaries/summary/49320 where your doctor goes to get updates to treat different diseases. BUT since the IDSA guidelines were out of date by some 15+ years. The IDSA Guidelines that your doctor is use to has been taken down. Now the remaining new guidelines (excepted by the Lyme community and Lyme Literate community) are the only Lyme treatment guidelines there. Now the CDC is still pushing the old Lyme protocols of the IDSA and most big Hospitals and Giesinger is one of them and any affiliated ones. Still use the old out dated guidelines. So if you mention nicely to your doctor to study up on the new guidelines. He can go to, https://www.guideline.gov/summaries/summary/49320 . We in the Lyme community know the fallout that you will get by many and you should be vigilant in looking after your own health as most medical professionals are not there yet.
We also talked about the CME Lyme Conference coming to Philadelphia, Pa. In Dec. You can mention that and your doctor is always looking for CME's (Continued Medical Education) with credits. You will be abl to find more on the at www.ilads.org. Don't forget https://www.guideline.gov/summaries/summary/49320 .
