Uh Oh, I Might Have Intestinal Parasites.
We have many lab tests on our website, but the stool test / parasite test is the most popular in the United States.
Common parasites like the entamoeba histolytica have a long tradition of living amongst healthy, thriving organisms. They are not about to give that up. At least not without a fight.
Some examples of specific parasites tested for in our stool samples ova and parasite tests include: roundworms, giardia, blastocystis hominis, tapeworms, pinworms, whipworms, hookworms, and many more. If a parasite is in your stool, our stool specimens parasite test will find it. Since they look at multiple samples, nothing is missed in your test result.
Symptoms of a parasite: Parasites come in so many different shapes and sizes, and they can cause a broad range of problems. Some parasites consume the food you have just eaten, leaving you feeling hungry after every meal and unable to gain weight. Other parasites feed off of your red blood cells, causing anemia. Some parasites lay eggs that can cause itching, irritability, and even insomnia.
Suppose you have tried countless approaches to heal your gut and relieve your symptoms without any success. In that case, a parasite could be the underlying cause for many of your unexplained and unresolved symptoms.
Parasites can enter your body through contaminated food and water. Undercooked meat is commonplace for parasites to hide. Other places are contaminated water from underdeveloped countries and local lakes, ponds, and creeks. Unclean or contaminated fruits and vegetables can have a parasite hiding. Some parasites can even enter the body by traveling through the bottom of your feet.
