Lyme Light Radio with Host Katina Makris: The Importance of the Virginia Lyme Test Bill with Susan Green and Monte Skall

  09/25/2013  01:00 pm PDT

House Bill 1933 requires physicians to provide written disclosure to people who are tested for Lyme disease. The disclosure statement informs those who have taken a Lyme disease test that current laboratory testing can produce false negatives, especially in the early stage of the disease. If symptoms persist, retesting could be considered. Early detection of Lyme disease is critical to successfully treating the disease and its co-infections.
