Patient discussion about tape

Q. how will i know if i have a tape worm in my body?

A. Most people who are infected with tapeworm don't show symptoms.
It's possible you might notice segments of the adult tapeworm (proglottids) in your stool. Other possible signs and symptoms include:

Nausea
Weakness
Loss of appetite
Abdominal pain
Diarrhea
Weight loss and inadequate absorption of nutrients from food

If you suspect you have a tapeworm you'll need your doctor to check your stool or send samples to a laboratory for testing. A laboratory may use microscopic identification techniques to check for eggs or tapeworm segments in your feces.
