About 1.2 billion people are infected with helminths every year. Most of them don’t even know about it. Feeling unwell, weakness, headache, problems with the gastrointestinal tract, we are more likely to attribute it to stress and poor nutrition.
But these and other symptoms can signal an “alien invasion.” How to detect them and how to treat them?
Helminthiasis is an insidious disease and can be masked behind symptoms characteristic of a wide variety of diseases. For example, if parasites have settled in the lungs, a person will be disturbed by bouts of dry cough, which occurs for no reason and does not go away even after long-term treatment. If the worms have settled in the intestines, the symptoms can be manifested by abdominal discomfort, a tendency to constipation or diarrhea, intolerance to fatty foods, nausea, and swelling. Such complaints are not uncommon. You can treat, for example, gastritis or dysbacteriosis for years, without realizing that the cause of the ailment is helminths that parasitize in the human body.
What tests will help identify parasites?
If you suspect the presence of uninvited guests in yourself or your child, you should definitely consult a doctor and undergo an examination. Diagnosing helminthiasis is not an easy task, because detecting parasites is quite problematic. The most common method is to study feces for eggs of worms. But, unfortunately, it is ineffective, because worms have several phases of development and do not always lay eggs. To identify parasites, you need to take a stool test 3–4 times, and there is no guarantee that the analysis will show the real picture.
More accurate is the method of immunological analysis of blood. This analysis allows you to determine the presence of antibodies to helminths in the body, helps to determine the type of parasites, their number, to trace the dynamics of the development of the process. It is recommended to take a blood test for worms regularly, especially if the family has small children and pets.
