What is Lyme Disease?
Lyme disease is an inflammatory infection caused by Borrelia bacteria, which frequently infects animals such as birds, mice, other small rodents, and deer. The bacteria is transmitted by ticks that have bitten an infected animal, and then is distributed on to other animals, including humans. Ticks often carry multiple infections at a time, passing on these co-infections to its host. Co-infections complicate the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme Disease as symptoms vary from person to person and resemble a variety of other serious illnesses.
Early stages of Lyme Disease are easier to treat. Initial signs of flu-like symptoms and neurological conditions such as paralysis can worsen without treatment. Untreated Lyme Disease can become chronic and infiltrate into every system in the body making the diagnosis and treatment much more difficult.
Lyme Disease Treatment
Treatment for this illness can be extremely complex. It is necessary to look at the complications of Lyme Disease that can include biofilm (a sticky armour that protects the bacteria) and co-infections but this illness can weaken the immune system creating a multitude of infections and symptoms.
