Doctors in the United States rely on knowledge they have available in order to make best decisions in regard to patient care. In contrast to test results already done, Dr. Paul, a Clemson Professor of Agriculture and Forestry (letter to Dr. S April 2015) concluded I do not have parasites as evidenced by blood and stool tests. She wrote, "Infection with these parasites (ie protozoa) is easily ruled out because the serological tests were negative and no cysts were present in the stool sample....; In reference to helminth infection, eggs or juvenile worms would be readily identified in stool specimens; Evidence of a tapeworm infection (eggs, proglottoids) would also be easily detected in a stool sample." Research cautions about coming to such conclusions based on stool samples and serological testing. "Parasites have a unique life cycle- rotate between dormant and alive. In order to identify them in a conventional test, the stool sample must contain a live parasite, the parasite must remain alive as the stool sample ships to the lab, and the medical technologist must be able to see the live parasite swimming across the slide. These tests are unable to identify dormant parasites and therefore there are often a high number of false-negative tests with this type of stool test." (www.ncbi.nim.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3957779).
Other research on tests for parasites documents similar cautions due to lack of funding required for excellent testing procedures. "In the 1980s Congress passed the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act which resulted in a significant reduction in payments to laboratories for medical tests. Reduced reimbursements resulted in unfortunate reductions in highly trained medical technologists...A comprehensive parasite evaluation can be accurate but doing it in a complete and proper way includes...examining multiple slides for each client or patient...tedious work. A well-trained technologist or microbiologist gets tied up for the microscope work and away from other duties. Processing shortcuts become commonplace and the time under the microscope gets reduced. Given the present state of affairs, it is no wonder that most parasite examinations done by laboratories in the U.S. come back negative. A thorough and accurate parasite exam is actually hard to come by." (http://parawellnessresearch.com/articles-your health-pt1.html)
In regards to serological testing, "several immunodiagnostic assays (ie blood tests) have been found ineffective in detecting disseminated infections and show extensive cross reactivity with hookworms, filariae, and schistosomes. Specific and diagnostic test is lacking. Failure to detect larvae in a stool specimen does not indicate the unequivocal absence of the infection. Immunodiagnostic assays have been tested over the years, with limited success. The poor sensitivity of diagnostic stool examination makes it even harder to determine the efficacy of treatment because a true cure cannot be pronounced on the basis of negative findings."
