A parasitic malady is a communicable disease caused or transmitted by a parasite. Several parasites don't cause diseases. Parasitic diseases will have an effect on all living organisms, as well as plants and mammals. The study of parasitic diseases is named parasitology.
Symptoms may mimic anemia or a hormone deficiency. Parasites are responsible for many ill health conditions including diarrhoea, gastrointestinal upset, vaginal irritation, joint pain, nervous diseases, immune dysfunction and chronic fatigue. Long term, undetected infestation can cause many systemic problems.
Mortality from infectious diseases decreased by 41% among men and by 44% among women. While these types of changes were especially noticeable in the states of the North and Northeast, these states still have the highest mortality rates in the country.
