is this the result of badly prepared food? I've heard of E.Coli as a kind of food poisoning, but am pretty ignorant of it!
I really need an expert here, and begining to be difficult.
I further translated the report, and problematic because the lab lady types on bad typewriter.
As I find now, the literal translation is
Cysts of Entamoeba Coli
Spanish cultre is one of the most non-specific cultures on the planet, and tend to play yes on anything I say.
I am going to take a second test today at separate laboratory if possible.
Great! I am glad that they were able to find something!
There is nothing worse than going to a doctor when ill and having them try to tell you that you are well because they cannot find anything.
This is good news.
Hope you feel better soon,
Entamoeba Coli or if cyts' are present, Entamoeba Histolytica is a completely differetn form of E. Coli. Enatamoeba coli is usually found in contaminated food, from someone using the bathroom and not washing their hands, or in contaminated water. Typically it does not effect the host it contaminates, so in undeveloped countires that eat spicy foods, most people are infected and do not relize it. Spicy foods help keep down the amount of cysts and amoeba in the intestinal tract allowing host to co-exist with pathnogen (entamoeba) just fine. For those of us who it does effect negatively the only treatment is to take Metronidazole PLUS a lumenal amoebicide such as Paromomycin. Both medications have to be taken in order to kill off both stages of the amoeba. I had this paracite, and had much difficuty getting rid of it. The first time I was only given the metronidazole and did not kill off all the paracite. It took two more times of treatment with both medicines to fully get rid of the paracite. Make sure you wash your hands very well after every time you use the restroom and before every meal to make sure you do not reinfect yourself and others.
My partner has been suffering for 2 years with symptoms such as chronic Diarrhoea, blood and mucus. We have had colonoscopy's, been treated with quarterzone, had accupuncture and natropathy therapy. We have just recently had a stool test done and it has come back with traces of cysts of Entamoeba Coli. Can anyone please give us any advice on this. We are not getting anywhere with doctors and my poor fiances health is serisouly suffering... lost 10kgs in 6 months, goes to the toilet up to 20 times per day.
