Toxoplasma is an infection caused by the parasitic toxoplasma gondii. The infection can infect various parts of the body such as the gastrointestinal tract, innervation, eyes, to the brain. Toxoplasma can be transmitted through undercooked meat, through contaminated vegetables or fruit, or through direct contact with cat feces (especially those who have pets).
Toxoplasma is generally asymptomatic, so often people are not aware of having Toxoplasma infection. Toxoplasma may be as symptomatic as influenza, as well as headaches. If toxoplasma affects the nervous system, it can cause severe headaches, loss of consciousness, and seizures.
If toxoplasma occurs in pregnant women, then it has the potential to cause miscarriage or defects in the fetus. If your IgM and IgG levels are reactive, it is recommended that you check yourself directly in the obstetrician, so that your doctor can examine your condition further. Later the doctor will examine your situation directly, and conduct further tests to determine the right therapy for you. Do not take any drugs.
Eat perfectly cooked food, and avoid consuming raw vegetables such as fresh vegetables or salads.
