BENEFITING: Tick-Borne Disease Alliance
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
We do not talk enough about Lyme Disease. But it is a rapidly developing disease in Europe, the United States and Canada.
It is multiorgan (may affect various organs) and multisystem (may affect various systems). It evolves over several years or decades, through three stages (these stages is theoretical because in reality more or less differentiated, sometimes interspersed with periods of latency may overlap to some symptoms). Untreated and without spontaneous recovery in the first stage after a possible dormant phase, the disease can eventually affect directly or indirectly the majority of human organs, acute and / or chronic with different effects according to organs and patients, and ultimately lead to physical and mental disabilities. Sequelae and relapses are possible. The diagnostic criteria, screening, treatment, like the appearance of chronic disease are currently the subject of controversy in the medical world, among international experts.
Fortunately there are people who struggle to help, inform and support the person suffering from this disease. TBDAlliance is one of those wonderful people.
