Can you get parasites in the UK?

Many people associate parasites with exotic countries, but even here in the UK we can get parasites. You can carry parasites without being aware of having them and sometimes they only cause mild symptoms. Parasites can be dormant for a long time, even years, without causing symptoms and are activated only when our immune system for some reason is weakened. So whether you have got parasites in the UK or abroad, you can carry it for a long time before it causes any health problems.

Which parasites are tested

  • Giardia lamblia
  • Entamoeba histolytica
  • Cryptosporidium spp.
  • Cyclospora cayetanensis
  • Blastocystis hominis
  • Dientamoeba fragilis

Common symptoms of parasites

Parasite test or other gut test?

If you suffer from gut problems, we can also recommend our other gut health tests that analyses gut flora, malabsorption, leaky gut and more. We offer these as smaller gut tests or more comprehensive gut tests. For those of you who suspect Candida, we offer a test specifically for this. SIBO is also available, which is a separate test that is done via a breath test, which measures overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine.

About the parasites

Blastocystis hominis
One can be infected with Blastocystis hominis without having any symptoms. Symptoms often occur when we are exposed to stress, illnesses or the like. Common symptoms are diarrhoea, constipation, bloated stomach, abdominal pain and weight loss. Some studies show that there are links between Blastocystis hominis and Hashimoto’s (autoimmune disease of the thyroid gland).

Dientamoeba fragilis
Dientamoeba fragilis is a common parasite. You can contract it and not show any symptoms. Common symptoms are diarrhoea and stomach discomfort. Some studies suggest that there is a link between IBS and dientamoeba fragilis.

Giardia lamblia
Giardia lamblia can survive in water (even mildly chlorinated water) for several months and it is thus more common for more people to become infected during the summer months when they spend more time outdoors and might accidentally ingest contaminated water or food. Common symptoms are bloating, nausea, discomfort and fatigue.

Entamoeba histolytica
Entamoeba histolytica is relatively common but leads to symptoms only in about 10-20% of those infected and can thus be difficult to detect. It is an infectious disease of the gut and causes symptoms such as diarrhoea and vomiting. The parasite is spread via contaminated water and food, so good hygiene is the key to keeping these parasites away. Most common in poor parts of the world.

Cryptosporidium species
Cryptosporidium exists globally. Typically, people contract the infection by consuming water or food tainted with the parasite. Both humans and animals can carry and spread the parasite via their faeces. The parasite can transfer from person to person and from animals to humans. Those infected frequently experience severe symptoms, including diarrhoea and abdominal pain.

Cyclospora cayetanensis
Cyclospora cayetanensis is most common in tropical countries and most often transmitted through fresh and untreated plant products. It is common for the symptoms to come and go over time and the most common symptoms are diarrhoea, nausea, abdominal pain and weight loss.

How does the Parasite Test work?

The test is performed via a method called “Multiplex Real-time PCR” and involves the following:

  • detects minimal amounts of parasites
  • no chance of false positives

  1. Thomas Nichols

    Used this test after unexplained digestive issues. Results were quick and informative.

  2. Gabrielle :)

    In the aftermath of a family holiday in Southeast Asia, while the memories of exotic beaches and vibrant markets were fresh, so was an unexpected and persistent bout of fatigue, skin irritations, and frequent stomach disturbances. Initially dismissing it as post-travel fatigue, as weeks turned into months, the symptoms persisted, casting a shadow over my daily life. Based on a friend’s recommendation, I decided to explore the Parasite Test. The experience, from receiving the kit to dispatching the sample, was streamlined, with every step clearly elucidated. This was not just a test but an educational journey, prompting me to understand more about the intricacies of parasitic infections. The comprehensive results indicated an uninvited intruder in my system. More than just a diagnosis, the report provided a holistic view of the type, potential origins, and the possible repercussions of the parasite. Empowered with this knowledge, my subsequent medical consultations were focused and productive, leading to an effective treatment plan tailored to my needs. Now, reflecting back, I consider the Parasite Test to be an indispensable tool in my post-travel health toolkit. It bridged the gap between suspicion and action, ushering in healing and peace of mind. To anyone navigating similar health concerns, especially post-travel, this test could be your guiding compass. 🙂 !!!

    I had been suffering from frequent bouts of stomach pain and other issues. Ordered this test which was very user-friendly, and got my results fast. It turned out I had a parasite infection. This knowledge has been vital for my treatment. 🙂

  4. Sophie Graham

    Great test. Helped me confirm the cause of my persistent stomach issues.

  5. Aiden

    Being an adventurous eater, I’ve often indulged in local delicacies while traveling, occasionally questioning their hygiene. When I began experiencing digestive upsets and unexplained rashes, the possibility of a parasite loomed large. I opted for the Parasite Test to lay my concerns to rest. The kit was user-friendly, making the entire process hassle-free.

    The results were thorough, shedding light on a minor parasitic infection. Recognizing the issue was half the battle. With the insights from the test, I worked with my healthcare provider to embark on a treatment regimen. Today, I’m back to my energetic self, albeit with a more cautious approach to my culinary adventures. This test was a game-changer, guiding me towards the necessary steps to reclaim my health.

  6. Lucy Bradley

    After returning from a hiking trip abroad, I felt constantly unwell. I decided to try this test. It was easy to use and I received my results promptly. Turns out I had picked up a parasite on my travels. I’m now getting the right treatment thanks to this test.

  7. Fiona Shaw

    After months of digestive discomfort, this test finally gave me answers. Highly recommend.

  8. Emma Harrison

    After a backpacking trip through parts of South America, I came back with more than just memories and souvenirs. A lingering fatigue and persistent stomach issues hinted at a possible unwanted ‘guest’. Concerned about potential parasites, I decided to use the Parasite Test. The kit arrived promptly, with easy-to-understand instructions ensuring a smooth sample collection. A few days later, the results were in. To my dismay, they indicated a parasitic infection. The detailed breakdown of the results provided a clear understanding of the type of parasite and its potential impact on my health. Armed with this information, I sought medical intervention and started on a targeted treatment plan. Within weeks, my health began to improve. For travelers or anyone suspicious of a parasitic infection, this test is a must. It provided me with invaluable insights, allowing for timely treatment. 🙂
