Giardia Lamblia

This is the most common parasite that we come across when people are claiming holiday compensation for illness while on holiday, or even those people that have become sick after holiday.

This infection, is known as giardiasis. It is commonly found in countries such as Turkey, Kenya, Gambia and Bulgaria so it is necessary that you take extra precautions when visiting these destinations. Giardia Lamblia is found in the intestines, and this is where it lives and reproduces, causing severe illness to those that contract it.

Countries that have poor sanitation and where food is prepared on surfaces that are not hygienic or washed in contaminated water is where this parasite is commonly found. When getting ill on holiday, it is often that holiday makers have come into contact with this parasite either through drinking local water or when glasses and food have been washed in the contaminated water. Even when there are water coolers and people think that it is okay to drink out of them, a lot of the time, the holiday resorts are refilling these with local tap water.

Symptoms are:

  • Diarrhoea
  • Severe stomach cramps
  • Belching that is foul smelling (often described as smelling like rotten eggs)
  • Severe flatulence
  • Bloating
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss

This parasite is so severe that people that are ill when on holiday and do not get treated with antibiotics can be ill for months. It is imperative that you seek medical advice to reduce the length of time that the symptoms persist.
