      Patients with Alpha-gal Syndrome: There is a non-profit devoted to the identification, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of tick-borne diseases, including alpha-gal, and other lesser known diseases. They are conducting a research study survey of people with Alpha-gal. Brian Fallon, director of the Lyme and Tick-Borne Diseases Research Center and the specialist that the doctor in the NYT article was sent to, had only seen a handful of cases of Miyamotoi. He had noticed people testing positive for antibodies, though, which leads him to believe that people may have been treated for Lyme when it was this newer.

With the. Tick populations are increasing in the United States and their geographic ranges are expanding, largely due to climate change.

Since ticks are responsible for nearly 95% of annually reported vector-borne diseases, this increase represents a new and severe public health concern. In the U.S., ticks are responsible for transmitting a greater variety of viral, bacterial, and protozoan diseases.

Lyme disease is the most well-known and common tick-borne illness 1, although, as noted above, ticks can carry multiple infectious organisms, or co-infections, that cause multiple diseases. Tick bites often go unnoticed as they are usually painless and can be so small that they may be easily overlooked.
