Giardia A small parasite that causes intestinal disease with diarrhea. In the environment, it inhabits soil, surfaces, food and water contaminated with feces. The source of pollution can be both human and animal faecal masses.

Giardiasis can be transmitted through fecal-oral route (with food or water). The parasite is easily spread through contaminated food and drinking or recreational water (river, lake, pond).

The parasite causes inflammatory processes in the small intestine.




Bloating, flatulence


Abdominal pain



Giardiasis is common in travelers and also in day care centers. It is most often transmitted through contaminated water and food.

Research material: stool, where the antigen is detected.

In addition to antigen detection in feces, additional studies may be necessary.
