Yes


Lyme disease can cause just about any symptom and is associated with many other conditions including hypoglycemia. Lyme can contribute to other imbalances including candidiasis, magnesium deficiency & adrenal fatigue which in turn can contribute to hypoglycemia.

Lyme disease


There is much speculation, primarily in the lay press about "adrenal exhaustion" due to Lyme disease. This seems to be purely theoretical and not based on any firm scientific evidence. The problem is that there is much we do not understand about Lyme disease, and it has been the speculative cause of many unexplained illnesses. Stick to "proven" facts, and adrenal insufficiency is not.

Lyme disease can cause all manner of problems. Because it stimulates inflammation, I think that it can cause dry eyes. It travels via a tick only, not fleas.
