Good night. Is it really true that a parasitic infection such as a worm can have an impact on decreasing one’s HB levels resulting in anemia? If yes, what worms can cause a decrease in hemoglobin levels huh? How to overcome it?

1 Answer:

Hello Dita, thank you for asking.


Worms can occur to anyone, both children and adults. Worm eggs enter the human body through food and drink contaminated with worm eggs, dirty drinking eating utensils, poor body hygiene, or enter through wounds to the skin exposed to soil or animal waste. The eggs will then enter the human digestive system and develop into adult worms. Depending on the type of worm, some worms can live outside the digestive tract, for example in the circulatory system and lymphatics (filariasis), on the skin (cutaneous migrant larvae), in the lungs, in the eyes, or in certain organs.


Worms that last a long time and are severe, can cause intestinal surface damage. As a result, nutrients cannot be optimally absorbed. Then someone can experience malnutrition and anemia. Anemia occurs due to substances needed for the formation and maturation of red blood cells, can not be absorbed optimally. Basically, various types of worms can cause various types of symptoms, depending on the location of the worm's life. Hookworm, tapeworm, or other types, may cause anemia.


Worms are easily treated with worming medicines, as long as the worms do not attack vital organs. Someone should routinely consume worming every 6 months. If the intestinal worm condition is advanced, then additional therapy may be needed to be given at the hospital. In addition, maintaining personal hygiene, drinking utensils, and food drinks, become the main way to avoid worm infections.


That is my explanation. May be useful. Regards.
