Thanks for placing your query here.
I can appreciate your concerns.
your stool report clearly suggests that you are suffering from intestinal amebiasis , a common & easily treatable parasitic infection.
Amebiasis is contracted by consuming contaminated food or water containing the cyst stage of the parasite. It can also be spread by person-to-person contact.
Please take metronidazole (7-10 day course) or tinidazole(3 day course) tabs in appropriate doses.
Hope I have answered your query.
No specific diet is needed except to avoid spicy, oily or junk foods.
If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
Wishing you a good health.
