Parasites

Blastocystis hominis
Blastocystis hominis is one of the most common parasites found in the human digestive tract and many of those infected are asymptomatic carriers. It can, however, cause a range of gastrointestinal symptoms including diarrhoea and/or constipation, bloating, flatulence, loss of appetite, abdominal discomfort and pain.

In chronic cases symptoms can include weight loss, blood in the stool, dizziness, nausea and vomiting, rectal itching, chronic fatigue and depression.

Dientamoeba fragilis
Dientamoeba fragilis is a parasite which can cause a range of gastrointestinal symptoms including diarrhoea and/or constipation, mushy stools, abdominal discomfort and pain. Other symptoms associated with this parasite are nausea and vomiting, headaches, dizziness, weight loss, chronic fatigue, low-grade fever, bloody stools and rectal itching.

It has also been implicated in some cases of colitis, allergic colitis & bowel inflammation. Many people suffer symptoms for years before diagnosis and are often misdiagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Entamoeba histolytica
Entamoeba histolytica is a parasite found in the human digestive tract and many people are asymptomatic carriers. About one in 10 people who are infected with Entamoeba histolytica suffer symptoms from the infection. These can include loose stools, abdominal pain, cramping, bloating and loss of appetite.

Entamoeba histolytica can cause a more serious disease known as amoebic dysentery which is associated with abdominal pain, diarrhoea, blood in stools, fever, weight loss and chronic fatigue. Rarely, this parasite invades the liver and forms and abscess. Even less commonly, it spreads to other parts of the body, such as lungs or brain.

Eradication
These parasites have been known to become resistant when monotherapy such as metronidazole is used in treatment and therefore a special approach to parasite eradication is required. It is possible to treat these infections after which, most patients report either a complete resolution or a great reduction, in symptoms.
