Lyme disease patients experience obstacles to diagnosis and treatment

Obstacles to Diagnosis and Treatment of Lyme Disease in the USA

To our knowledge, this is the first study to explore factors which may contribute to a delay in diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease. We identified distinct, potentially modifiable risk factors between onset of first Lyme disease symptoms and treatment. Targeting these drivers may reduce time to diagnosis and treatment and reduce the occurrence of late-stage Lyme disease complications.
