Advice 1: How to get checked for worms

Worms – dangerous neighbours of the person from which you need to get rid of. To determine that the person is infected with worms, in his appearance and nature of failure in his body, but the most effective are clinical methods of diagnosis stool and blood, as well as methods of clinical and instrumental diagnosis
How to get checked for worms
There are more than a dozen ways to get checked for worms. The most common among them are microscopic examination, diagnosis of polymer-chain reaction, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, vegetative-resonance testing and clinical diagnostics.

Microscopic examination

If you consult to the doctor-infektsionist, you will likely be asked to donate stool for microscopy – laboratory study of feces under the microscope to identify larvae in it and fragments of parasites. The accuracy of this method is low (12-20%) and depends on the sensitivity of the microscope, as well as the professionalism of the technician. By microscopic examination of feces is impossible to determine the presence of internal parasites such as Trichinella or Toxocara.

Diagnostics of polymer chain reaction (PCR diagnostics)

PCR diagnostics is a molecular diagnostics method, which involves measurement of the concentration of nucleic acid fragments (DNA) in the patient's blood. This method allows to diagnose the infection of the patient protozoa, viruses and intracellular parasites, it is thoroughly tested in clinical conditions and has stood the test of time. A significant disadvantage of this method is the impossibility of determining the number of parasites in the body of the patient.

Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)

ELISA diagnostics is used to determine antigens and antibodies in the blood of a patient infected with parasites. The accuracy of this method reaches 90%, its level depends on the degree of destruction of the body by worms, and at what stage of the life cycle are parasites. The method allows not only to establish the fact of helminth infections, identify parasite species and the extent of their distribution in the body, but also gives the ability to track the dynamics of the process.

Vegetative resonance testing (VRT)

Art is a unique method of computer diagnostics, which allows to identify worms in humans the frequency of electromagnetic oscillations. With the help of art reveal not only progressive helminth infection, but also any changes in organs and tissues related to the presence of parasites before you see the clinical manifestations. This method is the most comfortable and most reliable.

Clinical and instrumental diagnostics (KID)

KID includes ultrasonography (us), computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). The accuracy of these methods depends on the subjective factor and the correct interpretation of the results. If the laboratory does not have sufficient experience for diagnosis, the reliability of the results is greatly reduced.

Other methods

For the diagnosis of tissue helminthiasis, acute or lichinochnoj phase worm infestation are other methods of research. The most common serological methods related to the study of the patient's blood are reactions of indirect hemagglutination, latex agglutination, complement binding, and immunofluorescence.

If a confirmed diagnosis that you have worms, you should not self-medicate. It is better to consult a doctor, infectious disease doctor, who will pick up the necessary drugs against parasites in accordance with your diagnosis, age and individual characteristics.

Advice 2: How to get checked for parasites

Parasites can reside in any human body and does not manifest itself. The patient concerned about complaints of a subjective character depending on their habitat. The doctor starts to prescribe drugs for the treatment of one or the other of the body did not realize to check for parasites. The infection occurs not only through dirty hands or from Pets, as is commonly believed. It is possible to check parasites through poorly washed vegetables, greens, fruits, poorly processed meat or eating infected fish.
How to get checked for parasites
First check for parasitesthat live in the gastrointestinal tract. Test is passing tests on the egg-worm and scraping. Tests may not show the presence of parasites the first time. For reliable result it is necessary to take them at least three times daily. Cal pass in the form of heat and fresh.
If these tests came back negative and the doctor suspects the presence of parasites in a patient assigned to the examination of blood for presence of antibodies. In case of positive results the accuracy is 100%. Assigned to anti-parasitic treatment and after it carried out re-survey intervals.
If you suspect the presence of parasites living in the liver is assigned the probing and testing of material taken. If the results of the analyses showed the presence data of parasites, then a long-term treatment in stationary conditions, which does not always lead to positive results. Some patients treated over the years and can't get rid of parasites. And just had to use checked the fish and subject it to careful heat treatment.
In order to prevent infestation wash hands before eating under running water with soap, carefully wash fruits, vegetables and herbs. After washing, all you need to parboil. Do not drink water from unknown sources or subject it to boiling. Prevaricate thoroughly and cook meat and fish. Do not drink unboiled milk from the cow. Better get tested and pasteurized dairy products in the store. Do not forget to carry out preventive deworming of Pets, time to treat them from fleas. Get rid of rodents that often live in basements.
When carrying out serological diagnosis in the sample (serum) identifies antibodies to a particular parasite (analysis for parasites). Ie is a method of indirect determination of the infectious agent in the body, which establishes the presence of infection in the body at the moment/ reveals the fact that at some point in the past, the body met with this infection on the response of the human body for this contact.
Useful advice
If the patient thinks about where to be tested for worms, then he may have had some suspicious symptoms. The main signs of presence of parasites in the body are the Most accurate way to detect worms is a blood test. The patient is taken blood from a vein. The research on the analysis varies from 1 to 9 days, depending on the type of parasite. Such analysis is highly sensitive, and its accuracy is more than 95%.
