Ever since time immemorial, the medical profession has been there. There are a lot of illnesses that face the people on the earth and hence interfering with their peace and that is why they have to deal with them. The industry has been able to gather scientists who have come together to be able to find solutions to the illnesses that there are. In the current day world, we do not have to worry anymore about the problems that we might have medically because there are most likely medicines that can be able to solve them.
One of the illnesses that is however persistent is the Lyme disease. 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 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 illness can be considered fatal because when at its vital stages, it is able to cause death. 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.
Another fact that the people should know about is these high risk areas. In the north side of the united states, they are risk prone and the people that have traveled there over the recent past should get checked. The disease is preventable and the people should be on the lookout.
