Incidence of Lyme disease in the United Kingdom and association with fatigue: A population-based, historical cohort study

Background: Estimations of Lyme disease incidence in the United Kingdom vary. Methods and findings: A population-based cohort survey was conducted on patients treated in general practices contributing to IQVIA Medical Research Data (2001-2004): 2,130 patients with a first diagnosis of Lyme disease between 2000 and 2018 and 8,510 randomly-sampled patients matched by age, sex, and general surgery, with a median time of 3 years and 8 months was recorded. Lyme disease incidence in the United Kingdom increased from 2. 55 percent in 2000 to 9. 33 in 2018, up from 9. 55 in 2000 to 9. 33 in 2018. Conclusions: Strong evidence indicating that Lyme disease was related to subsequent exhaustion and ME/CFS were found in UK primary care records, including ME/CFS. Although Albeit's shorter-livedered effects persisted for longer than six months, patients and healthcare professionals should continue to be alert to fatigue symptoms months to years after Lyme disease diagnosis, according to researchers and healthcare professionals.
