Vt. lawmakers look at Lyme disease treatment

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

Vermont lawmakers will once again consider protections for doctors who choose to treat chronic Lyme disease.

The medical community as a whole recognizes Lyme disease, but disagreement exists over whether the disease can last for more than just a few weeks.

No Vermont doctor has lost their license for breaking with treatment guidelines by prescribing a more aggressive antibiotic treatment.

The measure under consideration would remove the threat of license removal and is based on legislation in other states.
