It was announced a few hours ago by the BBC: Justin Bieber would be suffering from Lyme disease, a dangerous condition that – in some (rare) cases – can even lead to death. The Canadian singer appears to have been suffering from an undiagnosed chronic viral infection for some time. “I’ve had a very difficult couple of years,” he writes on his Instagram profile. There were many, however, who claimed that he had drug problems. Justin Bieber suffering from Lyme disease. The
«A lot of people kept saying
that Justin Bieber was shit, that I was on methamphetamine, but they didn’t
realize that I was recently diagnosed with Lyme disease, and
also chronic mononucleosis that affected my skin , the functions of the

said the singer. There have been many, however, to downplay the severity
of Justin Bieber’s health situation but his wife, model Hailey
Bieber, defended her husband on her social media.

making some documentaries on YouTube that will tell about his terrible
experience of him and other details of his life that no one knows yet. What is Lyme disease and how is it transmitted
Lyme disease is a disease of bacterial infection
often transmitted by ticks. These tiny creatures are practically
everywhere – especially in the countryside and in the mountains, places where the grass is generally
very tall. The people most at risk, however, are those who own dogs.
In fact, ticks attach themselves extremely easily to the animal’s fur and
can transfer to humans. What is Lyme disease
The pathology has a bacterial origin. It belongs to the group
of so-called anthropozoonoses, or diseases that are transmitted from
animals to humans. It seems an uncommon disease but it is not like that at all.
According to the New York Times, in fact, it is “the infectious disease
that spreads more rapidly, after AIDS”. However, these figures
refer to the United States. The good news is that there does not seem to be
a real emergency in Italy. The regions most affected in any case are
Liguria and Trentino Alto Adige. How Lyme disease occurs
The bacterium responsible for Lyme disease is a spiral-
shaped microorganism called Borrelia burgdorferi (Borrelia
burgdorferi sensu striato, Borrelia afzelii, Borrelia garinii). This is why
Lyme disease is also referred to as borreliosis. In addition to dogs,
wild animals such as
rodents, roe deer, deer, foxes or hares can be the main vehicles of infection. The pathogen infests, first of all, the
poor ticks which can subsequently come into contact with humans and
transmit the disease to humans. Once infected, the person
is affected in the skin and joints. In severe cases, however,
it can also involve the nervous system and other organs. Lyme Disease
Symptoms Symptoms, like all infectious diseases, only occur
after the incubation period which varies from 4 to 25 days.
The most typical initial manifestation is an erythema that migrates to various parts of the body until it
becomes an extensive spot. Shortly thereafter, joint and muscle pains
, fever, fatigue and neck stiffness may arise. If you do not intervene
early, cardiac and neurological disorders can occur. Lyme disease meningitis
Although this is an extremely rare condition, in some cases following the infection, aseptic meningitis (meningitis of non-bacterial origin) can occur. But it can also lead to inflammation of the cervical nerve roots, severe tinnitus and Bell’s palsy. Cases of memory loss and behavioral changes have also been reported. It is important to remember that, unfortunately, the bacterium does not give immunity, so Lyme disease can be contracted several times in a lifetime. Recognizing Lyme disease
More often at the onset of the disease, symptoms can
be confused with a common flu. If these occur after being
in the countryside or in the woods, it is advisable to check each area carefully
of the skin to check for a tick. They are
tiny at first, but when full of blood they become significantly larger.
So easily visible. Blood tests for Lyme disease
There are blood tests – ELISA or IFA to look
for antibodies to Borrelia – to determine the infection. It is important
to underline, however, that these are unsafe tests that can give many
false positives or negatives. The cure for Lyme disease
There are currently no particular treatments. The only possible
one is the antibiotic that should, however, be performed immediately to avoid
complications. In this sense, however, there are many conflicting views. In fact, many
experts advise against antibiotic administration. According
to circular no. 10 of 13 July 2000 (Tick
-borne diseases: epidemiology notes – prevention measures. From
the Ministry of Health website), taking an antibiotic early could
distort the diagnosis. Finally, there is new hope from Yale University, which
appears to have devised an experimental vaccine to prevent Lyme disease.
This vaccine stimulates the immune system to produce antibodies against the
disease. Extracting Ticks to Avoid Lyme Disease
If the tick is extracted immediately the odds of
contracting Lyme disease plummet. In fact, this little
creature takes about 12-24 hours to finish digestion of
human blood and, if necessary, to pour the bacterium into the bloodstream. The tick,
once detected, can be easily extracted with small tweezers.
The operation must be performed with extreme delicacy and attention so as not to
run the risk of leaving the buccal apparatus inside our skin.
Another recommendation is not to crush the insect if it is full of
blood: you would risk letting any bacteria enter the circulation. Finally, remember
that not all ticks are carriers of Lyme disease.
