The diagnosis of Lyme disease is made by a clinical determination and presentation along with a thorough history made by your provider. There are many other factors that play a supportive role in making this diagnosis such as symptoms, observations, exposure and diagnostic tests.
Here at Rapha Health and Wellness Center we follow the recommendations of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) whose guidelines emphasize patient-centered, individualized specific care.
There are many medical controversies surrounding Lyme disease and has caused division regarding the best approach for treating persistent Lyme when compared to the CDC and IDSA guidelines. Therefore, understanding that the ILADS guidelines are based on the best available evidence, clinical expertise and patient centered values. Treatment will consist of a careful assessment and re-assessment to guide and help direct ongoing treatment decisions.
