The medical profession has been there 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. There are medicines that can be able to solve the issues that we may have medically and that is why we do not have to worry about them anymore.
The Lyme disease is however one of the illnesses that have been noted to be persistent. Not much of the population have been affected by the disease and for that case it tends to be rare. The observation has however been countered because there are statistics that originate from the research that is conducted and it tends to conflict. To be able to realize that the disease is more common than we actually thought, there are a number of facts that people have to learn 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 attribution of the growth can be linked to the rising temperatures globally. The warm and the humid temperatures are the ones that are the perfect thriving ground for the species that carry and transmit the Lyme bacteria. The environment that is created by the global warming is the best for the ticks to be able to breed.
One more statistic is only a small number of the cases that are diagnosed are treated and it is a fact that should be looked at. Death can be caused at the vital cases of the illness and the bacterial infection hence can be termed comfortably as fatal. 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. The disease is preventable and the people should be on the lookout.
