Too Close for Comfort

Twice Mr Attwood was forced to leave his home in Africa and return to the UK for expert consultations. After multiple tests, biopsies and imaging he turned to Medix and finally received a diagnosis and effective treatment

Working in West Africa entails a serious change of diet and environment for anyone used to living in the UK. For many, this means ongoing stomach upsets and even diarrhea with occasional illnesses and infections. As a machine engineer in Africa, these were a permanent part of Mr Attwood's daily routine.   
 
In mid-2014 Mr Attwood fell ill, feeling weak, nauseous, as well as experiencing joint pains and constant headaches. Local doctors had a hard time finding a diagnosis. A number of different parasites and infections were discussed and ruled out. Each time a diagnosis was proposed, another treatment was given with no effect. After a few months with no improvement, Mr Attwood returned to the UK to be seen by a specialist.
 
The consultant he saw concluded that Mr Attwood was suffering from over sensitivity to a parasitic infection and prescribed steroids. No specific parasite was diagnosed but the treatment worked, and the symptoms disappeared during the following month. After making a recovery, Mr Attwood returned to Africa. 
 
Unfortunately, his recovery didn't last long. A mere few months later his symptoms had returned. Once again he felt weak, tired and achy with the addition of a severe cough. Once again, the local medical team was unable to help and he was forced to return to the UK. Numerous tests, biopsies and imaging tests were performed to no avail. Eventually Attwood was discharged home in a right state; feverish, fatigued causing him to sleep over 20 hours a day and suffering joint pain. At this point he turned to Medix and initiated service to find a remedy for his condition. 
 
Given the long period of illness, numerous tests and multiple treating locations, Medix spent extra time obtaining all the medical records and tests. These were all reviewed and sent to a world leading infectious disease specialist. He thoroughly reviewed the information and systematically ruled out various candidates, narrowing the search. Eventually, one parasite called strongyloides, was diagnosed based on the following information: the parasite is endemic in West Africa, has a high false negative rate for the tests Attwood had done, has a known resistance to treatments given so far and often migrates to the lung, a process that would explain Mr Attwood's new cough.
 
Once this diagnosis was confirmed, Medix's consultant discussed the case with the treating team, and agreed with them on the new required treatment. An agreement was reached and within a few days significant improvement was noticed. Within weeks, Attwood was completely back to normal, returning home and back to work just as before.
