In one of the cornerstone moments of Lyme disease politics over the last decade, the connecticut house of representatives passed a bill which allows physicians to diagnose chronic Lyme disease and treat it with long term antibiotics.
According to the Connecticut Post:
Thursday the state House of Representatives took a strong stand on the issue. In a 137-0 vote, members passed legislation to reassure doctors they will not face retaliation if they choose to diagnose chronic Lyme disease and treat it with long-term antibiotics.
This will hopefully be the first domino to fall in what will likely turn out to be a series of wins for chronic Lyme treating physicians and patients. I’ve written about this topic before and am glad to see this development!
