The question of how parasites can be identified in the human body worries many, as these are organisms that lead a parasitic lifestyle and whose development cycle requires a permanent or temporary existence in the human body. This can be done according to certain symptoms. Although different parasites manifest themselves in different ways, there are some common symptoms that can lead a person to believe that they are not having very pleasant roommates. Second, it is possible to determine the presence of parasites in the body with the help of special diagnostics. Timely diagnosis will allow you to avoid serious consequences and avoid diseases caused by the negative influence of worms.
Signs of parasites in the body
How do you know if there are parasites in the body? You have to listen carefully to your body and the processes that go on in it. In the initial stages of parasitic invasions, symptoms may not be bright enough. However, a person who takes care of their health will notice pathological phenomena and be careful:
- Allergic reactions. One of the signs of a parasitic attack on the human body is an allergy. In response to the adverse effects of parasites, the human body begins to produce more eosinophils - protective cells. They can cause allergic reactions. The parasites in turn release immunoglobulin E into their host's blood, which contributes to increased allergies. The most powerful parasite is the roundworm allergen, which causes reactions in the body (rash), digestive tract, lungs and conjunctiva.
- Discomfort in the gastrointestinal tract. Parasites localized in the small intestine trigger an inflammatory process in it, as a result of which the normal functioning of the intestine is disrupted. Nutrients are poorly absorbed, undigested fats enter the rectum, while a person has cramps and diarrhea alternates with constipation. In addition, the patient has pain in the stomach area, left or right hypochondrium, nausea, and heartburn. The appetite disappears, the body weight decreases. With disorders of the biliary organs and the digestive tract, acne, pigmentation, the skin can appear, the skin becomes dry and slack, the complexion is dull.
- Some worms, due to their size or number, can block the bile ducts, thereby clogging the generalbile duct., the outflow of bile worsens or stops in humans. This manifests itself as obstructive jaundice. Since toxic substances are mainly excreted through the skin, problems with the gallbladder or liver affect the condition of the skin. Age spots, acne appear, the complexion becomes jaundiced.
- Stool disordersmanifest as diarrhea and constipation. Constipation occurs when the intestinal lumen becomes blocked by parasites. Diarrhea is caused by prostaglandin-like substances that cause the body to lack chlorides and sodium.
- Persistent diarrhea causes the body to lose water, which leads todysbiosis.
- Parasites strongly weaken the immune system, immunoglobulin A is produced in smaller quantities and the body becomes susceptible to viral and infectious diseases.
- Due to the fact that parasites migrate through the body, they can settle anywhere, including muscles and synovial fluid. Due to their interventions in the muscles and joints, inflammatory processes occur that cause pain. Hence, a person hassore joints and muscle aches.
- Due to the disruption of digestion and the absorption of nutrients by worms, a person suffers from a lack of nutrition and a decrease in blood sugar levels, as a result of which body weight decreases. Pathogenic organisms absorb minerals and trace elements that are necessary for a person, and thereforeAnemia and premature aging develop.
- Anxiety and nervous conditions provoke toxic waste products from parasites, they affect the nervous system and cause various disorders.Insomniain humans occurs because the body tries harder to get rid of harmful organisms at night.
- In some cases, a large accumulation of helminth infestation can causeoncological processesin the host's body. The risk is particularly high when the parasites are located in a specific organ - lungs, liver, pancreas, etc.
An attentive person will certainly notice the symptoms described. He must be checked for parasites himself or see a doctor so he can send him for diagnosis.
The presence of parasites in the human body can be determined with the help of various diagnostic methods, which not only detect the presence of parasites with great accuracy, but also determine their type, amount, location and damage that they have caused to human health.
Until recently, the presence of parasites was only determined by analyzing the faeces. Despite the fact that this is the simplest research method, its accuracy is not very high.The fact is that parasites don't lay their eggs every day, and it is impossible to guess when exactly this will happen. Therefore, for an accurate diagnosis, you need to donate feces 10 times a month. It's not very convenient for people to work and study. But now there are more advanced diagnostic methods:
- X-rays, endoscopy and endobiopsydetect parasites in internal organs (lungs, gall bladder, liver, etc. ).
- PCR (polymerase chain reaction). The DNA of the parasite is determined on the basis of samples taken in the form of a sample of saliva, secretion or blood. If a blood test shows the presence of parasites, a PCR test can determine whether the parasites are one type or another.
- ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay). It recognizes antigens and immunoglobulins. The accuracy of such a diagnosis is 90%, and the type of parasites, their number and overall dynamics are tracked.
- Bioresonance diagnosis. The patient's body is affected by electromagnetic oscillations, while it is only possible to check the presence of pathogenic organisms, but it is impossible to determine their species.
Conclusion and Conclusions
If you suspect the existence of parasites, or just want to be tested in this regard, you need to consult a doctor - a parasitologist or an infectious disease specialist. He will tell you how to test and, if the results are positive, prescribe the correct treatment. We strongly advise against self-treatment. First, antiparasitic drugs have a large number of contraindications because they are very toxic. Therefore, they can only be taken as prescribed by a doctor. Only a doctor can choose the right dosage to destroy parasites and harm the human body as little as possible.
Second, some parasites need to be removed from the body under the supervision of a doctor. When a drug acts on the parasite it dies, but before that it releases toxins in its host's blood that can cause anaphylactic shock in a person.
Thirdly, it is ineffective to use traditional medicine against parasites. They only work preventively or in the event that the infection has just occurred and the larva has not yet grown up. In all other cases it is pointless to add pumpkin seeds, green walnuts, and wormwood soon.
