I have active Lyme Disease. I did a lot of research to find a doctor who specializes in treating this illness and uses an "integrative" approach - he combines traditional drug therapy with diet, nutrition, exercise, holistic practices, etc. While I had to travel 1 1/2 hours to see him, it was well worth it.

Your hubby's needs would be based on his weight, body composition, and his nutritional status. This site, our members and our experts are unable to assess your hubby's condition. Please talk to the doctor and ask for a referral to see a Registered Dietitian

Hubby was recently diagnosed with Lyme; looking at the info and his history, we think he's had it for many years. That suggests he's likely going to have to live with it, despite antibiotics.

Does anyone know anything about how nutrition can help/hurt with a chronic diagnosis that includes painful joints and fatigue?

Thanks!
