Debra Muth, ND, is a Lyme Literate Practitioner treating Lyme disease in Kenosha
Lyme disease in Kenosha is a growing problem. The things we love about our state—the forests, farmlands and parks—provide a perfect environment for the infected tick population that transmits Lyme disease to people of all ages. People with Lyme disease in Wisconsin may also have to deal with co-infections such as: Babesiosis; Anaplasmosis; Tularemia; Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and Powassan virus. Dr. Muth was recently interviewed in the Kenosha News to discuss her expertise and knowledge about Lyme disease in Kenosha.
Treating Lyme disease in Kenosha
People who think that they or their family member may be dealing with Lyme disease in Kenosha should give serious consideration to a practitioner’s level of expertise. Choosing a Lyme Literate Practitioner is a smart decision because Lyme disease is often misdiagnosed by conventional M.D.s who don’t see the disease very often. Debra Muth has undergone training with ILADs, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating Lyme disease awareness and educating health professionals.
Acute Lyme disease vs. chronic Lyme disease
Patients who suspect they have contracted Lyme disease in Kenosha need to understand the difference between acute and chronic Lyme disease. “Acute Lyme disease means a patient has been diagnosed and treated in six months or less after contracting the disease,” according to Dr. Muth. “Chronic Lyme disease means that a person hasn’t been diagnosed or treated within the first six months after they contracted the disease.” Many people don’t receive a diagnosis for months or years, and that can lead to many complications for patients with Lyme disease in Kenosha.
