The symptoms caused by parasites, similar to the symptoms of many other diseases and therefore correct diagnosis is quite difficult. "Patient" is sent to the dermatologist, neurologist, gastroenterologist. And the reason is simple — intruders in the body. They secrete special substances called toxoids that are strong poisons. Infestations cause intoxication of the body, weakening the immune system and disrupting the metabolism.

Parasites get into us through food, vegetables, animal hair, money, toys, carpets, linen, dust, and many other things...

Sources of infection

The zone of high risk:

  1. Fans of home-salted fish at risk to get worms of length up to 10 m and exist with them for 25 years.
  2. Dogs and cats become infected with worms when eat raw, dirty food, licking contaminated fur. The owner of a pet are easily infected by contact with him.
  3. Trichinosis is a mandatory companion for fans of homemade bacon and barbecue.
  4. Gardeners often use unwashed dill, green onions, strawberries from his garden, confident that they are completely clean. Each year, millions of people become cozy nutrient reservoir for the threat of worms.

Parasites live not only in the intestinal tract, but also in vital organs: brain, heart, lungs, liver, kidneys and muscles. Symptoms such as chronic fatigue, irritability and anxiety, anemia, brittle nails and hair, dull skin, headaches, disorders of appetite, reduced immunity, can be signals parasitica morbis. Once in the human body, the larvae of worms begin their migration to organs and systems in search of asylum. And who knows where they will stop. If in the lungs or respiratory tract, life to complicate frequent colds, bronchitis. Their appearance in the intestine causes abdominal pain. The larva may reach the pancreas and liver, to be even the tissues of the brain!

  1. They multiply at an incredible speed, draining the strength of the body, taking all the best.
  2. In the human body, the parasites multiply, fed by the resources of the body of the donor, absorbing the fabric of the nutrients that come from food.
  3. Proper functioning of all systems of the human body over time will completely break down.
  4. Immunity decreases drastically, constantly trying to protect people from dangerous aggressors.
  5. The person becomes completely defenseless before the onslaught of numerous infections.
  6. Pests in the human body emit toxic substances that poison the body and lead to severe infectious, parasitic, cancerous and other diseases.
  7. Such diseases are chronic with frequent relapses and often are fatal.
  8. Symptoms presence in the body of parasite pests are hard to recognize because they are disguised as symptoms of other diseases.
  9. Prolonged lack of treatment lead to serious health problems.
  10. Parasites inside of the person lead to the imbalance of the human body and even life threatening.

Types of human worms

harmful parasites signs

Epidemiologists are well aware that a huge number of people carry parasites, from tapeworms (length of 10 m or more) to the smallest organisms, visible only under the microscope.

Here are some of them:

Distinguish worms:

  1. Round annelid C. elegans. In the context of their body looks like a ring. It is Trichinella, roundworm, pinworm, whipworm.
  2. Trematodes. Sterilis in their body. It's a Fluke, flukes.
  3. Tape – in cestodosis, trematode. Their body is flat like a ribbon. They are devoid of the digestive system. It cepni, lantecy, Echinococcus.
  4. Skrebni, which are transmitted to humans from mammals, birds, fish.
  5. Subcutaneous: Guinea worms vermis pliers.
  6. Protozoan parasites of man – the amoeba. They consist of one cell, sneaks in the blood vessels, leading to cardiovascular diseases. AMI BIOS did the accumulation of protozoan parasites that colonize certain organs, form a tumor. Protozoan parasites of man contribute to the development of stroke by damaging blood vessels.
  7. Translucent. More than 100 species of worms live in different cavities of the human body: the small intestine, the large intestine.
  8. Fabric. Live in various tissues: lymph vessels, muscles, brain, lungs.
  9. Ear mites occur in humans rarely.
  10. Parasites in human liver: Giardia, amoeba, Schistosoma, ascarids, Echinococcus. Many processes in the body are completely violated, if in the liver has been infiltrated by pests. This body is completely defenseless against these alien creatures.

In the human body can inhabit more than 300 species of parasites.

Giardia parasites in length and 9-18 µm. Giardiasis is a very widespread disease, which is caused by a lesion of lamblias of the small intestine and the liver (most often children). The groups of children in our country infectio lamblias is 40 %, among adults — 10 %.

With regard to the characteristic features of malaria parasites in the human body, women, it inflammation of the ovaries, lack of energy, menstrual irregularities, development of fibroids, inflammation of the adrenal gland, bladder and kidneys.

In men, prostatitis, impotence, adenoma, cystitis, sand and stones in the kidneys, the bladder.

  • The child, while still in the womb, can be infected with chlamydia, toxoplasm, Trichomonas, staph... the List is very long.
  • Diseases caused by parasites are often the cause of the delay mental and physical development of the baby.
  • Eczema and psoriasis — evidence that is insufficient in the body of silicon, and this in turn may be due to the presence of a roundworm.
  • Diabetes can be caused by trematode and lamblia, which affects the pancreas.
  • Inflammatory diseases of the joints can also be caused by parasites.

The most common types of parasites

Pinworms that cause enterobiasis:

  1. This nasty disease infected 49% of children, that is every second child. According to who, 1 billion people on the planet have in your body pinworm. Infection occurs through the mouth by the fecal-oral route through dirty hands, contaminated with pinworm eggs.
  2. In most cases, enterobiasis affects children in preschool institutions and school. Pinworms are most often found in children 5 to 9 years. However, this is a problem at any age. Pinworms only sick people. But they can live in the body of cockroaches, which carry this infection.
  3. In the gastrointestinal tract can also live tens of thousands of these small worms up to 1 mm. most Often they are found in the Appendix and the caecum. Sometimes enterobiasis is asymptomatic.
  4. Parasites live 2-3 months. During this time each female lays around the anus 11 thousand eggs. To do this, she at night goes through the anus and secretes a special substance that causes a very strong itching and irritation. These symptoms bother the patient. The child scratches his itchy hands place. As a result, under each nail up to 500 eggs of worms, which can remain active years. Often found in the feces of these small worms.

Causes of ascariasis:

  1. Approximately 1.5 billion earthlings are those illegal pests, which reach sizes up to half a meter. In the small intestine of adult parasitic roundworm.
  2. They feed on the food that eats people. The female roundworm devotes about a quarter of a million eggs every day, which go out. Of each egg may receive Ascaris.
  3. Infection occurs as a result of adding the eggs and larvae of parasites from feces into the mouth with dirty hands, food.
  4. The danger of roundworm is that a in the human body it strikes the larval stage. Then she gets into the bloodstream. Then it enters the liver, gallbladder, heart, maxillary sinus. Formed in the lungs and lives of viable larvae. A cough, which patients hirundines larva is ready to become a Mature individual.

Insidious whipworm:

  1. Affects the gastrointestinal tract.
  2. Infestation is often the cause of disability of the working population.

Threat Trichinella:

  1. People become infected through improperly processed meat domestic pigs, and wild animals.
  2. Sources of infection are cats, rodents, dogs.

Sometimes asymptomatic Parasitosis. However, often it is possible to identify the following signs of infestation: toxic and allergic reactions, often skin; neuropsychiatric disorders ("unwarranted" anger, fatigue, sleep disorder); discomfort and pain in the abdomen, rumbling, distension and bloating; helminthiasis often provoke an aggravation of chronic diseases, the localization of the helminth and location of the patient's body can not match.

  4. A sharp disruption of normal body weight, decrease or increase. The mass of the body decreases because the body is struggling with intoxication, does not receive the necessary substances for it. Weight increases and obesity develops as the result of the activity of the worms in the blood dramatically reduces the sugar content. It causes an irresistible feeling of constant hunger.
  5. Flatulence – gases in the intestines. Pests disrupt the normal activity of the digestive tract and cause inflammation. Worsens the absorption of food essential nutrients that the body constantly loses.
  6. Anemia. Pests are attached to the large intestine, disrupting its integrity. This leads to the loss of blood.
  7. Heart disease – myocarditis.
  8. Severe pain in muscles and joints. These human tissue is very convenient for comfortable living worms. Here they settle, feed, injure tissue and cause inflammation.
  9. The immune system reacts to the presence of alien pests, causing pain.
  10. Liver damage that manifests as inflammation of the biliary tract, chronic hepatitis.
  11. Weakness, memory loss, unstable mood.
