Doctors Warn of Painful Parasite Hiding in Your Sushi

Doctors warn parasites could be lurking in your sushi	 	 	 			sushi

Doctors said the growing popularity of sushi in the West is linked to a rise in parasitic infections.

But it was only when the man revealed that he had recently eaten sushi that the doctors suspected he might have anisakiasis, then found worms in his gut.

Anisakiasis is a parasitic disease caused by the consumption of contaminated raw or undercooked fish or seafood.

The man's symptoms cleared up after the larva was removed.

Doctors are warning people who eat sushi Sushi the dangers of ingesting parasites from raw and undercooked fish.

An Italian study also advised that medical professionals should suspect the condition should patients complain of severe abdominal pain after eating raw fish, pointing out that "no effective pharmacological treatment is able to kill the larvae once eaten".

The man's condition immediately improved after the doctors found the larvae during an endoscopy and removed it.

Reported cases of anisakis infection surged to 124 in 2016 from six in 2007, according to figures from the health ministry, with the results leading to the ministry urging consumers to heat or freeze properly seafood before consuming it and to carry out visual inspections for the existence of the parasitic worm.

This inner vision revealed a swollen intestinal membrane with a firmly attached parasite, its end penetrating the stomach. Some people will develop complications, including digestive bleeding, bowel obstruction and peritonitis, inflammation of the inner wall of the abdomen.

"Patients can have allergic symptoms".

According to the CDC, some people will experience a tingling sensation after or while eating raw or undercooked fish or squid, which could actually be the parasite moving in the mouth or throat.

Sushi has a healthy reputation - it can be low fat and high in protein - but a new report serves as a stark reminder that sushi made with raw fish can carry a unsafe parasite.

The authors said that most of the cases reported to date were from Japan, where a raw fish diet is very common.

"This will ensure that any undetected Anisakis larvae are killed".
