Lyme Disease On The Rise

Tick
Tick

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released new information that shows that 300,000 people contract the tick-borne Lyme disease every year.

Those numbers mark a tenfold increase in cases.

Officials with the Indiana State Department of Health said there were 63 confirmed cases of Lyme disease last year, but health experts believe that figure is likely underreported.

Most people recover from the disease with antibiotics, but if it is left untreated, Lyme disease can cause arthritis and even neurological problems.
