Talking To Your Doctor About Chagas
Because Chagas disease is a neglected, hidden disease, many doctors have never heard of it or were not taught about it in medical school. Others may not believe the disease is present in the United States. Even people who have tested positive for Chagas disease and shown their results to physicians have been unable to get treatment.
If you believe you are at risk for Chagas disease, tell your doctor you would like to be tested. You can refer them to our website or the CDC website; both have pages for health professionals.
If you have already been diagnosed, we can consult with your primary care doctor and discuss treatment options. Contact us for more information.
