Tapeworm Symptoms: Things To Note!

February 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 175

The most common tapeworm is the fish worm, which gets into a human body by consumption of freshly caught fish without cooking. The most efficient carriers are freshwater fish. Another type of tapeworm called Taeniasis gets inside its host by the consumption of raw or half-cooked meat.

Tapeworm infection is most common in the northern hemisphere. However, infected goods may happen to be exported to other dimensions of the planet too. Most of the time, tapeworm symptoms go unnoticed and the host feels a period of short recovery from it after some time. Gradually, it multiplies in the intestines and creates symptoms like frequently upset stomach, weight loss, indigestion and nausea. Taeniasis, commonly seen in countries like Latin America and Eastern Africa may cause seizures and even loss of eyesight.

In addition to the general symptoms of being infected by any parasite of the kind, tapeworm symptoms, in their advanced stage include frequent and severe headache, occasional loss of consciousness, a general feeling of confusion and seizures. A person suffering from any of these symptoms requires urgent medical attention. And its absence can be life-threatening. The symptoms like muscle twitching or spasm and a general feeling of tiredness also are among the symptoms of tapeworm infection in its advanced stage.

Tapeworm symptoms always happen to be misdiagnosed. The only common and vivid declaration of its presence is the headless parts of tapeworm commonly found in the stool. If there is any suspicion, it is generally advised to get medical assistance as early as possible.

The physician then reaffirms it with an antibody test. If the patient has started suffering from its neurological impacts like frequent loss of consciousness or the difficult to balance and coordination, the treatment starts as early as possible.

The most common treatment method for this infection is cleansing the stomach which the doctor accomplishes with the assistance of a combination of herbal substances. The doctor may even prescribe general medicines to make sure that the recovery is fast and easy.

Even though, a complete protection is impossible, the precautions like the decision not to eat raw or uncooked meat or fish can go a long way in warding off this infection. The practice of good hygiene like washing hands after using the toilet and keeping the environment fresh and neat too can boost your attempts to guard yourself from tapeworm symptoms.

These symptoms can become life-threatening if left unnoticed for quite a long time. Make sure that you do not drink water from unknown resources. These habits may appear too easy to follow strictly. However, prevention is far better than cure for any disease and tapeworm infection is not at all an exception.
