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.
The Lyme disease is however one of the illnesses that have been noted to be persistent. It is however rare because not much of the population have been affected by it. There are statistics that tend to go against this observation and they arise from the recent studies that have been conducted. Contrary to the thoughts of many, the disease is common and that is supported by a number of facts that people have to know about.
The illness becoming increasingly common is the first fact that is able to shock many. 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 ticks are able to breed because the global warming effect is causing a conducive environment.
Only a few cases of the disease are diagnosed and treated is the other fact that is shocking. The bacterial infection is able to cause death in the vital cases and is hence a fatal illness. To be able to handle the issues now, one may need medical attention even though there are a lot of people that have immune systems that are able to deal with the issues. The people should be on the lookout for some of the symptoms of the illnesses because if it is not checked, the disease can be able to kill the immune system slowly.
The people should be able to know that there are high risk areas and that is the other fact. Areas that are considered high risk like the north of the united states are recommended to have those that visited there go and get checked to make sure that they are safe. The disease is preventable and the people should be on the lookout.
