If we knew how many people had lyme, the only way that would happen is if we knew how to accurately diagnose it. We don't. Except for an actual antibiotic challenge to see what happens, we don't.

The primary problem in the lyme wars is a lack of awareness on how to recognize it, how to diagnose it, and how to treat it. Without a solid grasp on all of that, which we are nowhere close to having, there is no possible way to do accurate number crunching. Output extrapolation results will be flawed because the input estimates are flawed.

Nobody knows the number of cases of Lyme in the USA. Anyone claiming to know is making fraudulent claims that they cannot support with critical science.

But my doctors who do this day in and day out have their own estimates. That is, only 1 in 10 lyme patients are correctly diagnosed. How do you count the rest?

I have my own estimate of the number of lyme cases in USA. It is 10X whatever we think it is.

Or more simply - a lot more than anybody wants to admit!

The bottom line is that depression patients who visit LLMDs usually come out a lot better than they went in. That is just reality. Science is so far behind the curve. Number crunching doesn't help.
