High Risk versus No Risk.
Dr. Diuk-Wasser says:
“In areas that are low risk, a case of Lyme disease is not impossible but it’s highly unlikely, so the clinician should be considering other ‘diagnoses.”
This statement conveys the message that there is no Lyme in the low risk areas.
What the researcher concludes is not accurate and portrays the disease as an isolated one. Patients outside the high risk area are still at risk, as evidenced by the huge number of Lyme disease cases in low risk areas.
This researcher is NOT qualified to suggest medical diagnoses.
