Tapeworms: How to tell if you have one

Dear Dr. Manny,

I ate something on a trip to Brazil and now I’ve been having terrible stomach issues. I’ve read about people who have had tapeworms and I don’t know if I have one. How do you know if you have a tapeworm? What do the eggs look like? How do you diagnose a tapeworm? Will the worm die on its own? Is it common to get a tapeworm? 

Thanks for your question.

A tapeworm is a parasite that you can get if you eat the infected and undercooked meat of an animal. So you could have gotten a tapeworm by eating something. It’s hard to know if you have a tapeworm on your own, but the most common symptoms are abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, unexplained weight loss, dizziness, trouble sleeping, and jaundice.

WHICH MEAT IS HEALTHIEST TO EAT? 

When you go to the bathroom, look at your stools. If you see white pieces in there, you might have a tapeworm infection.

Your appetite might change. If you’re eating a lot more but weighing a lot less, then it might be a tapeworm.

Some kinds of tapeworms cause anemia symptoms because they eat all the Vitamin B12. This is a problem because your body needs that vitamin in order to make red blood cells. If you have no sense of touch, trouble walking, and feel stiff, that’s a sign of anemia. Paired with the other symptoms, you might just have a tapeworm.

Tapeworm eggs look like little grains of rice or seeds. If they hatch, the larvae can sometimes crawl up your intestines and live there. This causes cold-like symptoms, such as coughing.

WHY IS YOUR STOMACH MAKING NOISES?

In many situations, however, most people don’t even know they have tapeworms. There can be almost no symptoms.

When doctors diagnose tapeworms, they do it via a stool test. They check the stool for worm parts, or proglottids, and eggs. The patient collects a sample and sends it to the lab for testing. Technicians view the sample through a microscope to see if they can find proglottids or eggs. The Centers for Disease Control mandates that three different samples be tested.

Tapeworms must be treated because they do not go away on their own. They reproduce with eggs and grow in the human intestine. Some tapeworms grow to be 25 feet long inside their hosts. The larvae travel to other parts of the body and infect parts of the tissue, in the brain and in other areas. These larvae form cysts that can cause damage.

Tapeworms are not very common in the U.S. The laws and inspection practices have ensured that infected meat is not sold.

If you think you have a tapeworm, you need to talk to your doctor about getting tested.

Texas woman convicted in $5.5M health care fraud scheme, DOJ says

Westlake Legal Group RTR4OCXQ Texas woman convicted in $5.5M health care fraud scheme, DOJ says fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/texas fox-news/us/crime fox-news/politics/regulation/health-care fox-news/politics/justice-department fox news fnc/health fnc Dom Calicchio b81e54a0-7581-57d4-b335-0dd075c81fe7 article

A Texas woman was convicted Friday on six counts of health care fraud in connection with a $5.5 million federal workers’ compensation overbilling scheme, U.S. Justice Department officials said.

Melissa Sumerour, 48, of Lorena, was found guilty by a federal jury following a five-day trial, DOJ officials said in a statement.

Sumerour and co-defendant Latosha Morgan, 42, of Grand Prairie, billed the Department of Labor’s Office of Workers Compensation for more physical therapy work than was actually provided, officials said. Morgan has pleaded guilty and is scheduled for sentencing in March 2020.

CLINTON PORTIS AMONG RETIRED NFL PLAYERS FACING FEDERAL FRAUD CHARGES

Both women worked for Dr. Les Benson, a physician who played pro football for the Dallas Cowboys in the 1970s, KWTX-TV of Waco reported in October 2018. That story said Benson had been indicted twice in connection with the case, which dates back to 2011, but Friday’s DOJ statement makes no mention of him so his current status was unclear.

An affidavit reviewed by KWTX in 2018 said Sumerour and Morgan worked as billing clerks for “Physician A,” whom sources told the station was Benson.

Criminal complaints stated that Physician A “incentivized Melissa Sumerour and Latosha Morgan to maximize billing by offering a bonus if their respective clinics billed over $50,000 in a week.”

One complaint said Sumerour and Morgan “submitted and/or taught others to submit” false health care claims between January 2011 and March 2017, KWTX reported.

Since its creation in March 2007, the DOJ’s Medicare Fraud Strike Force has charged more than 4,200 defendants who had billed the Medicare program for nearly $19 billion, the DOJ statement said.

British woman survives 6-hour cardiac arrest after getting caught in Spain snowstorm

MADRID – A British woman was revived after her heart stopped for six hours in what doctors in Spain called an “exceptional case on a global scale.”

Audrey Marsh, 34, who works as an English teacher in Barcelona, was lost with her husband in a snowstorm in the Spanish Pyrenees mountains last month.

She suffered severe hypothermia and fell unconscious before entering into a cardiac arrest.

HEART FROM DEAD DONAR REVIVED, TRANSPLANTED INTO VETERAN IN US FIRST

When she was rescued by emergency teams, her body temperature had fallen to 60F and she showed little signs of life. The normal body temperature is 98.6F.

Doctors in Barcelona said Marsh’s case was one of the longest cardiac arrests ever recorded in the world.

“When I woke up in hospital I was very confused. I don’t remember the weekend at all, ” Marsh told Fox News last week. “Then I realized how serious it was. There was a sense of relief and horror. My husband watched me take my last breath. I died and then came back from death.”

She added: “Other people might have given up hope but the doctors brought me back from the most extreme situation.”

APPLE WATCH CATCHES GRANDMOTHER’S HEART CONDITION, POSSIBLY SAVING HER LIFE

The couple went missing in a snowstorm after spending a weekend with friends on November 3.

Rescuers located Marsh in time after her husband sent friends photographs of their location.

She was flown by air ambulance to the Vall’d’Hebron Hospital in Barcelona, where she was connected to an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machine.

The machine stands in for the heart and lungs, pumping blood through the arteries and heating it, which raises the body temperature. Doctors believed she could survive if they treated the hypothermia.

“This is an exceptional case on a global scale,” Eduard Argudo, a doctor from the Vall d’Hebron hospital told a press conference. “There are practically no cases of people being revived after their heart has stopped for so long.”

When she arrived at the hospital, Mash’s heart was showing no electrical activity and her kidneys and lungs were not functioning, doctors said.

Argudo said the sharp fall in her body temperature may have saved her as the cold preserved her organs.

Six hours after entering cardio-respiratory arrest, Marsh’s heart began to beat naturally again.

Marsh, who spent 11 days in hospital recovering, has not suffered any long-term brain damage but has trouble moving her hands which were affected by the cold.

“When I went home I had damage to my hands. I could not do up my buttons on trousers or put in my earrings. These are small things which are going to get better,” she said.

Mash’s husband, Rohan Schoeman, 36, who is South African and works as a teacher, said the couple had spent the weekend with friends but left early morning without them.

“At one point the snowfall became very heavy. We found a rock and tried to use it for shelter to avoid adverse weather conditions. Once visibility improved, I could see that our friends had tried to contact us,” he said. “Audrey was losing consciousness so I tried to send some photos to our friends of where we were.”

Marsh admitted the couple should have taken more precautions in the snowstorm.

“I didn’t realize how changeable the weather was at the time,” she said. “Perhaps we weren’t as prepared as we should have been, we were careless.”

Despite her ordeal, Marsh said she wanted to return for walks in the mountain within a year but said they should be better prepared this time.

Florida teen dies of mono, dad says: ‘She was a very giving soul’

A Florida teen recently died of the “kissing disease,” or mononucleosis, her father said.

Ariana Rae Delfs, 17, of Fernandina Beach, died after falling ill about three weeks ago, according to local news station WJAX-TV. The teen’s father, Mark Delfs, said Ariana had coldlike symptoms and “seemed to always have a headache” in the weeks before her death.

“The persistent thing all the way through was the headache,” he said.

WISCONSIN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SEES CHICKENPOX OUTBREAK: HEALTH OFFICIALS 

When Ariana failed to improve, her parents took her to a doctor who ran various tests, including one for mono, as per the news station. But a formal diagnosis was not made.

The teen’s symptoms continued to worsen. She was rushed to the hospital the morning after she spent one night “throwing up just constantly,” said Delfs. “We got very nervous.”

At the hospital, Ariana stood up at one point to use the restroom but told her parents she could not feel her legs.

“She felt like her legs were just giving out,” her father said.

Doctors suspected the 17-year-old was suffering a stroke and she was subsequently airlifted to a hospital in Jacksonville.

“Her words were very slurred at times. She was just talking gibberish, and the damage was already beginning at that point, which we just didn’t know,” said Delfs.

Sadly, Ariana received a formal diagnosis in the final days of her life: Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), which causes mononucleosis. The Mayo Clinic says the virus is the most common cause of mononucleosis.

The teen’s brain swelled to the point where it was not able to properly function, meaning Ariana suffered irreversible brain damage. At that point, “we just made the decision that it was time to let her go,” her father told the news station.

Following his daughter’s death, Delfs is urging other parents to take their children’s symptoms seriously and “be on top of it.”

“In our case, it wasn’t enough, but in somebody else’s case it may save their life,” he said.

Ariana, a scholar-athlete at Fernandina Beach High School, an artist, and self-taught musician, was “a very giving soul,” Delfs added. “She would give anybody anything.”

The teen’s funeral was on Wednesday. Her family has also set up a GoFundMe to raise money for “some of her passions, including music and arts programs for children, helping animals and making the world a better place,” the fundraiser reads.

Wisconsin elementary school sees chickenpox outbreak: health officials

An outbreak of chickenpox has affected at least one elementary school in Wisconsin, according to health officials in the state.

UK SEES FIRST BIRD FLU OUTBREAK SINCE 2017; 27,000 CHICKENS TO BE CULLED: OFFICIALS 

In a statement posted to Facebook, the Rusk County Public Health Department in Ladysmith, Wis., announced the outbreak at Ladysmith Elementary School. At least five cases have been confirmed, including four cases of breakthrough chickenpox, which occurs in people who have been vaccinated against the disease.

Symptoms of breakthrough chickenpox are often milder, with few to none of the blisters or red spots that typically come with the disease. That said, those infected with breakthrough chickenpox are still contagious.

The outbreak of chickenpox occurred at an elementary school in Wisconsin.

Chickenpox is a highly contagious virus that spreads when an infected person coughs, sneezes or even talks. The virus can also spread to an unvaccinated person if they come into contact with an infected person’s chickenpox blisters. Symptoms typically include fever, headache, lethargy, and an itchy rash.

The family had been searching for a donor for the 63-year-old since December but hadn’t been able to find a match until Knapp reached six months post-partum and was able to be tested. The pair, who underwent their respective surgeries in New York, couldn’t hold back their tears when they saw each other post-transplant.

Toddlers with unexplained bruising had ‘pork tapeworm’ larvae in body

Doctors discovered that two toddlers in China with unexplained bruising on their limbs were actually suffering from a parasite infection typically caused by consuming undercooked pork.

The 3-year-old boy and his 1-year-old sister, who reportedly first showed signs of skin discoloration in October, were treated at Shenzhen Third People’s Hospital in early November after the girl developed a cough, AisaWire reported.

“The child was admitted because of bruises which repeatedly appeared on her body and especially on all four limbs,” Wang Xianfeng, a pediatrician at the hospital who treated the siblings, told the news outlet. “It wasn’t immediately clear what her condition was, so the advice was for her to stay for further tests.”

Xianfeng noticed the bruising was similar to her brother’s, and the pair were given blood tests which showed high white cell counts.

“This clue, together with the discovery that the sister’s bruises were in fact nodules under her skin, led to us testing for parasites,” he told AsiaWire.

IS IT SAFE TO EAT ROADKILL?

That’s when doctors discovered the children were housing Taenia solium larvae in their bodies. The parasite, also called a pork tapeworm, is transmitted to humans through consuming raw or undercooked beef or pork.

“The larvae found in the children were living between their skin and flesh, causing nodules and bruising,” Xianfeng told AsiaWire, explaining that the larvae don’t always immediately grow into tapeworms, which can cause serious conditions in areas of the bodies.

Xianfeng told AsiaWire that he put the toddlers on an antiparasitic drug to flush out the larvae and that they are continuing to be monitored.

‘Botched’ patient with 2 implants in each breast shocks Dubrow, Nassif: ‘It’s forbidden’

A patient who sought the help of Drs. Paul Nassif and Terry Dubrow of E!’s hit show “Botched” said she was “super nervous” to tell the pair that she actually had two implants stacked in each breast.

“It kind of feels like telling my mom that I did something wrong when I was younger,” the patient, identified as Brittany, said on Monday’s episode of the show.

‘BOTCHED’ DOCTORS PAUL NASSIF AND TERRY DUBROW TALK BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFTS AND THE DANGERS OF INSTAGRAM

Brittany explained to the doctors that the first time she went for breast implants, she sought 600cc implants, which were placed under the muscle.

“Immediately after, my implant was actually poking out of my right breast,” Brittany said. “My doctor said he wouldn’t touch it, and it wouldn’t be worth fixing, so I started to seek out other doctors and do consults. At this point, I knew right away I wanted to go bigger.”

Brittany said a lot of doctors turned her away when she mentioned wanting 1300cc silicone implants.

Dubrow then explained that silicone implants come at a maximum of 800cc, and anything larger puts the tissue under too much tension and can cause thinning of the skin, atrophy of the breast tissue or other complications.

Brittany then explained that she found a doctor who offered to stack two silicone implants, placing one above the muscle, and one under the muscle, which shocked both Dubrow and Nassif.

“You go to the implant company inserts it specifically says, ‘Do not stack implants,’” Dubrow told Brittany. “It’s forbidden.”

Dubrow was able to remove the four implants for Brittany and replace them with one 800cc implant, while also avoiding too much scaring on her skin.

Dear Dr. Manny,

What kind of meat is the best meat to eat? I keep hearing that red meat is bad for you and can cause all kinds of diseases. Is that true? What does it do to the body? 

Thanks for your question.

There is no one good meat for everyone to eat because everyone’s body is different and requires different nutrients. However, usually, the best kinds of meat to eat are low in fat and high in protein.

IS CHRONIC WASTING DISEASE IN DEER DANGEROUS FOR HUMANS?

Sirloin steak is one of these meats because three ounces of steak has 25 grams of protein.

Oftentimes, the meat isn’t the problem, but the added salt and seasonings can make it less healthy. Rely on meats that aren’t as seasoned. Rotisserie chicken is high on flavor but low on seasoning, making it the most healthy kind of chicken to eat.

Chicken thighs are also good for you because they have good fats, fatty acids, and iron. Don’t deep fry your chicken, but bake it or roast it instead.

WHAT IS THE IRON LUNG MACHINE USED FOR?

Pork chops are good sources of lean protein and low saturated fat. Canned fish has 100 percent of the omega-threes that your body needs in a day.

Red meat is not necessarily bad for you. In fact, it is full of nutrition. Raw ground beef contains Vitamin B3, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, iron, zinc, and selenium. However, observational studies have shown that eating red meat on a regular basis can cause problems with your heart and may potentially increase your risk of cancer.

However, it is hard to prove that red meat is the only cause for these health problems. It is better to eat red meat as part of a healthy, balanced diet and strive overall for a healthy lifestyle and diet.
