Lyme and Mannatech's "new" protocol ???
« on: 27/08/2006 17:34:21 »
I inadvertently just discovered this forum.  Was reading about Mannatech Glyconutrients.

What does anyone know about their "new" protocol/products for Lyme Disease ??

Lyme folks on here ??

Will watch, read and listen to what goes on here as I am not familiar with Forum at all at this point.

Thanks,

Bebe

Are you sure to have "congenital Lyme disease"? I was searching something 'more solid than usual' about mannatech and rechecking borreliosis, but I found this:
 
quote:
Childhood neurologic disorders and Lyme disease during pregnancy.
To determine the prevalence of clinically significant nervous system disease attributable to transplacental transmission of Borrelia burgdorferi, we surveyed neurologists in areas of the United States in which Lyme disease is endemic (i.e., Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Wisconsin, and Minnesota). Overall, 162 of the 176 (92%) pediatric neurologists contacted responded to the survey with a range of 90-100% in the different geographic areas. One pediatric neurologist was following 3 children who were labeled as having "congenital Lyme disease," but none of the 3 met our case definition. None of the other pediatric neurologists surveyed had ever seen a child whose mother had been diagnosed as having Lyme disease during pregnancy. Similarly, none of the 37 adult neurologists in Connecticut surveyed had ever seen a child whose mother had been diagnosed as having had Lyme disease during pregnancy. We conclude that congenital neuroborreliosis is either not occurring or is occurring at an extremely low rate in areas endemic for Lyme disease.

Glyconutrients may be a promising field, but so far they seem either neglected or unsubstantiated in medical literature (even nutritional stuff).
Could you give us more information about it?
