Dr. Alan MacDonald discusses Lyme and Lewy body dementia
Internationally known Lyme researcher Dr. Alan MacDonald pioneered the use of pathological techniques to prove that untreated Lyme disease can result in a patient’s death.
Additionally, Dr. MacDonald has shown that Lyme disease can cause fetal deaths, stillbirths, and sudden infant deaths. He also was the first to link Alzheimer’s disease to Lyme infections.
In the following Tick Boot Camp podcast, Dr. MacDonald discusses his discoveries which connect Lyme infections in brain with diffuse cortical Lewy body dementia. (Diffuse Lewy body disease, a neurodegenerative disorder, is the second most common cause of dementia, following Alzheimer’s disease.)
