Lyme disease reports have more than doubled since 2005 but the disease remains drastically under-reported. While over 5,000 case of Lyme are reported in Massachusetts each year, there are probably more than 50,000 case a year.

With ticks predicted to be in particular abundance this year, CommonHealth explores the issue in a new series, “Losing to Lyme.”

**Comment

The diagnostic tests for Lyme are abysmal.  And compared to testing for other diseases, Lyme testing is an absolute joke.  I do not call testing that misses over half of all cases to be even remotely acceptable.  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2017/04/12/comparing-lyme-testing-with-hiv-testing/
