A powerful and highly emotive documentary ‘Living with Lyme Disease’, which examines how a tiny tick bite can dramatically change people’s health and wellbeing, will air on IRISH TV on Tuesday, October 11 at 9pm.

In conversation with a number of people in Ireland suffering with Lyme Disease, the programmemakers document the struggles around getting the correct initial diagnosis and then the appropriate treatment for a disease known as ‘the big imitator’.

National and international medical practitioners also talk about the challenges of dealing with Lyme Disease, while the life cycle of a tick and the danger tick bites pose to all is highlighted.

Presented by Brian Hurley and produced by James Pembroke, an independent film-maker and producer in Kerry who himself has suffered with Lyme Disease, the story is primarily about creating awareness of the illness and how easily it can be transmitted, and the prevention of it through early diagnosis and treatment.

It includes interviews with a number of people around Ireland who are currently living with Lyme Disease and documents the severe health difficulties and lifestyle changes they have had to endure as a result.
