    I am very satisfied with the company and regularly load my blood tests. The only pity is that you don't get a confirmation when the blood has arrived. That would be an added value...

    Gastropanel parasites from feces (code ST. GPPCX), consisting of;

    1. Cryptosporidium
    2. Giardia lamblia
    3. Entamoeba histolytica
    4. Dientamoeba fragilis

    1. Cryptosporidiosis is caused by a single-celled parasite called Cryptosporidium.
    These protozoa can multiply in the intestine, forming a kind of eggs. The eggs are excreted in the manure / faeces and are released into the environment. Subsequently, the eggs undergo a few changes that make them contagious and thus can lead to disease when ingested by other animals/humans through the mouth.

    On average, there is a week between infection and the occurrence of symptoms (this can vary from 2 to 12 days). The final clinical picture in humans varies from no symptoms at all to serious symptoms. Children under the age of five and people with reduced immunity are an extra sensitive group and show a more severe clinical picture.

    Important disease symptoms are severe abdominal cramps and (water-thin) diarrhea. In addition, nausea, vomiting, general weakness and a slight fever are also possible symptoms.
    In people with good immunity, the disease goes away on its own after two to four weeks. AIDS patients can develop a prolonged and (very rarely) fatal diarrhea.

    2. Giardia lamblia is a parasite that occurs worldwide, especially in tropical areas. In the Netherlands an infection with Giardia lamblia occurs regularly, especially in children. An infection with Giardia lamblia is called giardiasis or lambliasis. Infection with Giardia occurs at every age, but especially in children between 5 and 14 years old. In the Netherlands, giardiasis occurs frequently in August, September and October.

    The most common complaint is diarrhoea. The diarrhoea can be water-thin but there may also be mushy, smelly diarrhoea. The diarrhoea contains no blood or mucus and is often accompanied by nausea, gas, abdominal cramps and fatty, smelly stools. Sometimes there are also symptoms such as fever and vomiting. Periods with symptoms are often alternated with periods in which there are few or no symptoms.

    In rare cases the symptoms are more serious. Sometimes the infection can seriously damage the lining of the small intestine, making it difficult for it to absorb nutrients. Young children are particularly susceptible. They lose weight and their growth lags behind.

    In adult patients the symptoms can become chronic over time. Nutrients are then less well absorbed by the damage to the intestinal lining. This can lead to smelly, fatty stools and weight loss.

    Because the cysts of Giardia Lamblia attach themselves to the wall of the small intestine, the absorption of iron can be reduced. This can lead to anemia. A characteristic complaint of anemia is fatigue.

    If the parasite enters the bile ducts from the small intestine, it can cause a mild gall bladder infection. This happens only rarely.

    3. An infection with E. histolytica can have a very variable course. There are people with no n none or only very mild symptoms such as some thin stools and mild abdominal pain. The amoeba can also cause blood and mucus in the stool, severe abdominal pain and sometimes fever. If the amoeba spreads, a liver abscess can occur. Spread elsewhere in the body can also lead to lung abscess or brain abscess. These abscesses are accompanied by pain and fever. Incubation period
    It can vary from a few days to months or years, but is usually 2 to 4
    weeks.

    4. Dientamoeba fragilis is a controversial parasite. For years it was thought that this parasite would not cause intestinal problems. However, in a number of cases the parasite can cause symptoms such as abdominal pain and diarrhea. It is certain that some people who carry Dietamoeba fragilis do not have any symptoms. It seems that children in particular can suffer greatly from an infection with Dientamoeba fragilis.

    The chance of a positive finding increases when the sample is taken on a day that there is an increase in complaints. Parasites have a cycle. Every few days they will multiply massively and will be excreted. This creates a mushy stool. On this day the presence of parasites in the faeces is easier to demonstrate.

    The way one collects the stool plays a role. It is best to place a paper plate in the toilet, so you can collect a dry sample.
