Intestinal Parasites

Parasites are surprisingly common. While often acquired from international travel abroad, never leaving the good ole USA does not mean you won’t ever be exposed or experience a parasitic infection.

How Do You Know If You Have Parasites?

Parasites can live in the intestines for years without causing symptoms. This explains why international travelers (whether for pleasure, business or church service) who come home healthy may later become ill.  Symptoms of parasites may include:

  1. Abdominal pain
  2. Diarrhea
  3. Nausea or vomiting
  4. Gas or bloating
  5. Dysentery (loose stools containing blood and mucus)
  6. Rash or itching around the rectum or vulva
  7. Stomach pain or tenderness
  8. Feeling tired
  9. Weight loss
  10. Passing a worm in your stool

How Can You Get Parasites?

It’s a question that many ask. The following may increase your risk for getting intestinal parasites:

  • Living in or visiting an area known to have parasites
  • International travel
  • Poor sanitation (for both food and water)
  • Poor hygiene
  • Age: Children and the elderly are more likely to get infected.
  • Exposure to child and institutional care centers
  • Having a weakened immune system
  • HIV or AIDS, weakened health from other conditions

What to Expect at Your Doctor’s Office

Your doctor will ask if you have traveled out of the country recently and whether you have recently lost weight. If your doctor thinks you have an intestinal parasite, you will probably have one or more of the following tests:

Fecal testing (examination of your stool) can identify both worms and protozoa. Stool samples must be collected before you take any anti-diarrhea drugs or antibiotics, or before x-rays with barium are taken. Several stool samples may be needed to find the parasite.

The “Scotch tape” test identifies pinworms by touching tape to the anus several times, then looking at the tape under a microscope for eggs.

Your doctor may use x-rays with barium to diagnose more serious problems caused by parasites, although this test is usually not required.

Parasitic infections may be the root cause of other discomforts and challenges.  

For example, one doctor shared that his patient’s main concerns were dizziness and fatigue. Multiple doctors had tried to treat her for this for over a year, yet it remained. It wasn’t until she and the doctor put the pieces together that they figured it out: She’d been on a Caribbean holiday and experienced a bout of severe diarrhea. After her return home, she had also been unusually constipated and gassy. With this history, they were able to identify parasites as the primary cause of her dizziness and fatigue.

Once the parasites had been addressed, the dizziness and fatigue slowly abated and she returned to normal.
