"KeyLyme" stands for the "Keys" to preventing "Lyme" disease.

Dr. Richard Horowitz

Something to consider if you’ve been trying to get pregnant and having multiples miscarriages.

My first experience of a patient with Lyme disease who transmitted the spirochete to her unborn child happened almost 2 decades ago. I treated a woman for several years for Lyme and TBD's and she was completely well post treatment. There were no active symptoms. She became pregnant, and suffered multiple miscarriages with each subsequent pregnancy. Each time she lost her child, we tested the fetus. Her fetus was PCR (DNA) positive for Borrelia burgdorferi several times. It was not until we put her on a specific antibiotic regimen (IV cephalosporins, followed by oral cephalosporins and macrolides) that she kept the baby, and gave birth to a healthy term child. (Cephalosporins like Ceftin are safe in pregnancy, as are macrolides like Zithromax, but Zithromax does not adequately cross the placenta). Her story is outlined in both of my books, Why Can't I Get Better? and How Can I Get Better?

Mary Beth Pfeiffer discusses the problems of Lyme and pregnancy and the associated medical politics surrounding this disease in this article in Scientific American. Thank you Mary Beth for helping to raise awareness of the dangers of tick-borne diseases in women wanting to get pregnant. Other tick-borne diseases including but not limited to babesia, bartonella and rickettisia can also affect pregnant women.
Any woman wanting to get pregnant who has symptoms consistent with Lyme and tick-borne disease should therefore be tested for a broad range of tick-borne infections, understanding the sensitivity and specificity of the tests. See the list of symptoms on the Horowitz MSIDS questionnaire, (i.e., HMQ which has been published and validated as a screening questionnaire in the International Journal of Medicine: Empirical Validation of the Horowitz Multiple Systemic Infectious Disease Syndrome Questionnaire for Suspected Lyme Disease. Maryalice Citera, Ph.D., Phyllis R. Freeman, Ph.D., Richard I. Horowitz, M.D., International Journal of General Medicine 2017:10 249–273) to determine the pre-test probability of having a TBD.
Protecting our future generations must be a top priority in health care. We discussed this problem when I co-chaired the HHS Other Tick-borne Diseases and Co-infections subcommittee. Please see our report on the web site for further information on the diagnosis and treatment of co-infections.

Out hearts and prayers are with the Bennett family over the loss of their 3-year old daughter who passed away from Rocky Spotted Mountain Fever due to a dog tick bite.

Some of her symptoms included high fever and red spots over her body. Thank you to the Bennett family for sharing your story during this hard time so others don’t endure the same experience.

They key takeaway was that education about the warning symptoms and early treatment is crucial.

#Truth 👌

Dr. Richard Horowitz

NBC did an interview with author Porochista Khakpour and prior Columbia MD Dr Marina Makous. Khakpour's account of her bout with Lyme disease is all too reminiscent of the stories I hear from patients all the time. The two upcoming conferences that I will be speaking at in Colorado at the end of September and at Mt Sinai on October 2nd and 3rd will highlight new developments in the fight against Lyme that should give patients hope.


"Now, 100 percent of the country — all 50 states plus the District — has residents who have tested positive for Lyme, a bacterial infection that can cause a wide variety of symptoms, including joint aches, fatigue, facial palsy and neck stiffness."

Good morning beautiful!!! Here's your uplifting inspiration for the day! Sometimes the darkest storms bring about the most beautiful, most unexpected and even bigger and better change than you could have ever imagined! No matter your struggle, it will get better! Keep pressing forward! You are a fighter and have the strength to keep moving on!! 😘💪🏻👣🦋🌱⛈🌈
