There has been the presence of the medical profession ever since time immemorial. The reason for all of this is because of the illnesses that people are faced with that threaten the peaceful stay on earth. The scientists have over the years handled this and have been able to find solutions for the illnesses that there are. The worry among the people in the present day world does not have to be there anymore because there are medicines that can be able to solve the issues that there are.
The Lyme disease is however one of the illnesses that have been noted to be persistent. The rarity of the disease is noted because not much of the population has been affected by it here. The observation has however been countered because there are statistics that originate from the research that is conducted and it tends to conflict. Contrary to the thoughts of many, the disease is common and that is supported by a number of facts that people have to know about.
The first fact that is shocking is the one that the commonness of the illness is increasing. The research has evidence that over the last 25 years there has been a double in the level of commonness of the illness. The temperatures that are rising globally are the ones that the growth can be attributed to. The species that carry and transmit the Lyme bacteria thrives best in the humid and warm temperature areas. The environment that is created by the global warming is the best for the ticks to be able to breed.
Only a few cases of the disease are diagnosed and treated is the other fact that is shocking. The bacterial infection is able to cause death in the vital cases and is hence a fatal illness. The problem can be handled by the immune system of a lot of people even though there are a lot of them that need to go through the treatment so that they can be able to take care of the issues that there is. The immune of the body may be killed slowly over a long time if the disease is not checked and that is the reason why people should be on the lookout for the symptoms.
There are high risk areas and that is the other fact that the people should learn about. The people that have visited the north side of the united states over the recent past should be able to get checked to make sure that they dont have the disease because the area is a high risk area. People should be on the lookout and because the disease is preventable.
