The main Lyme forum in Poland is:

http://www.borelioza.dl.pl (registration required)
Language of forum: Polish

The dedicated tick borne diseases lab (very reliable tests by opinion of most patients, significant agreement between tests results and symptoms)
http://www.cbdna.pl/borelioza.html
email: biuro@cbdna.pl
(common foreign languages accepted)

Offer: Real time PCR Borrelia, PCR Borrelia, PCR Bartonella, PCR Babesia, Western blot Borrelia
(Soon will run website in English and will take blood for testing from the whole Europe via couriers)
Note that Real time PCR gives concentration of Borrelia in blood and there is a chance that this test can be used for treatment monitoring. Unlike the regular PCR this test will pick up even small amount of bacterial DNA. Regular PCR requires at least 500 DNA copies in samples to test positive; real time PCR will pick up as little as 5.

Poland has 3 dedicated LLMDs who focus on tick borne diseases in their practices and about a dozen other MDs who agree with position of ILADS and will treat patients with Lyme disease ILADS way.

Just curious-what protocal or guidelines are followed in other countries. Is the rest of the world caught in the same controversy as the USA?

Thank you Yvonne.

Seems we just don't know how good we have it here in the US-at least there is a controversy.
I even got to choose what protocal I wanted to follow. Since short term(3 weeks) didn't work, I was offered long term.

You see, Fin24, the problem is I have been in contact with those people for almost 1.5 months now, and I haven't seen any such list despite I asked them.

I have a fear that Kornish's revelations are too optimistic. Hopefully I am wrong.

Stan,

So often what is written on a site doesn't translate to what is actually done. I know that's true here in the States.

I do know there was another poster here (and on LNusa) who is in Poland, whose father is a doctor, and that poster travels to the US for treatment. So perhaps it's a lot harder to get treatment in Poland than the support groups suggest.

I don't know.

I'll P.M. you with the screen name of that poster and perhaps doing a search here and at Lymenet.org might give you his/her name. (I haven't seen that poster on either forum for a while, so I don't know if he checks in anymore.)
