Intestinal parasites are micro-organisms that live within the digestive tract and survive by eating your food. Their presence doesn’t always provoke symptoms, but this means they can often go undetected for years, causing nutrient deficiencies and other related health issues. Frequently, people become infected while travelling, from contaminated water, fruits, vegetables, poultry, fish, meat; or from pets.
Possible symptoms of parasites
Parasites aren’t always detected within one sample and therefore, three stool samples are needed to ensure accuracy. It is a microscopic investigation for worm eggs and protozoa cysts. These are hardy creatures and therefore, this detailed examination is needed to confirm their presence.
