Giardia in children: symptoms and treatment
A very common problem with most parents is lamblia in children. Of course, panic immediately arises: "How to treat lamblia in children, what factors contributed to the development of this disease?" - and so on. For a start it is worth settling down and not worrying.
It is worth noting that the peak of giardous infection falls on the period from three to eight years, and this is normal, since this is a feature of the behavior of the children at this age. Before we talk about whether Giardia in children, the symptoms of infection that can manifest or not, it is worth emphasizing: the behavioral features are such that a small child tries and drags into his mouth everything that comes his way. The sources of infection are undoubtedly the sandbox, the playground, and peers.
How can you get sick
In theory, the mechanism for the transmission of giardous infection is fecal-oral. Simply put, it is transmitted through unwashed hands. Therefore, Giardia cysts are very easy, one can say, freely enter the body of a little person.What other manifestations of such a disease as lamblia in children, the symptoms of the disease and the peculiarities of the children's body can alert the parents? Special attention should be paid if the biliary system is lagging behind in the development of the child's body: this is a congenital anomaly of the gallbladder, and excesses of the gallbladder, and dyskinesia of the biliary tract - all this is a favorable environment for lamblii to appear and develop from cysts. From the above, we can make an intermediate conclusion: poor bile secretion by the gallbladder is the most important condition for the development of this parasitic disease. As you can guess, with a healthy and normally functioning gallbladder, lamblia, by definition, cannot develop, and if cysts enter, then they are excreted naturally through the intestine, not lingering at all, and certainly not multiplying. As a rule, Giardia in children (symptoms) is a common age problem, which as a result, due to nature, often passes on its own without intervention from outside.
Prevention of Giardiasis
The basic rules of prophylaxis are to wash your hands without fail before eating and after visiting the toilet room. These are the classic rules that a child should have from a young age. As for the gallbladder, for its good functioning it is necessary to follow a peculiar diet: do not eat sparkling water, chips and similar products, which by their nature cause a spasm in the bile duct. Do not neglect the physical activity, because it will maintain the normal tone of the gallbladder, which also increases the resistance of the whole organism to any diseases and infections. Of course, Giardia in children, the symptoms associated with them, will not be clearly identified by home remedies. Therefore, the presence of parasites can be identified only after passing tests.
