Giardia Infection

What Causes Giardia Infection?

In order to deal properly with giardia infection we need to understand and — if possible — remove the underlying causes and risk factors.  We need to ask: "What else is going on inside the body that might allow giardia infection to develop?"

Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind giardia infection consists of three steps:

Step 1: List the Possible Causative Factors

Identify all disease conditions, lifestyle choices and environmental risk factors that can lead to giardia infection.

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

Identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause.

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of giardia infection.

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

If you indicate having a recent parasite infection, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Have you been infected with giardia that causes Giardiasis?
Possible responses:
→ Don't know
→ No, tests were negative
→ Past infection resolved now
→ Current minor infection
→ Current significant / chronic infection
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate not having giardia infection, past giardia infection or giardia infection, The Analyst™ will consider or rule out various possibilities.
