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.
