The infection caused by this protozoan is not very severe, and perhaps may not require any medication or treatment in many cases. However, diagnosis is essential, as this can help you bring about necessary changes in your food habits and overall life style.

Individuals with strong immune systems do not show specific symptoms related to Toxoplasmosis. However, someone with weakened immunity can experience flu like symptoms such as headache, fever or muscle and joint pain.

Patients who already have weakened immune system or are undergoing HIV treatment may show much more severe symptoms; such as, seizures, lung problems, vision troubles. If you have recently undergone an organ transplant, these symptoms could be all the more stressful and severe.

Pregnant women remain very prone to this disease. The infection if left undiagnosed, can spread to the growing fetus and may cause nervous system disorders. Sometimes the infected child may suffer from retarded growth. A sudden miscarriage or still birth are witnessed in cases where infection takes place during pregnancy.

Going under this test is very simple, as the procedure involves collecting small amount of blood from your arms through a venipuncture. Pregnant women, however, need to undergo amniocentesis for efficient diagnosis.

Individuals who remain in close contact with pets; especially cats, need to visit a doctor and inform about the same, if they experience flu like symptoms. Pregnant women definitely need to undergo the test as soon as they are advised by the doctor.
