I couldn't read the whole article, Glynis, but speaking from personal experience, I would say there's a causal link between giardia and chronic ill health. I was hospitalised about 5-6 years ago with it, and have not been the same, gastro intestinally speaking, ever since.

Thanks for posting the article.

I got mono two years after getting giardiasis, and got ME 2 years after that. When I got giardia, I took flagyl, and my acupuncturist friend said she had seen a link between taking flagyl and getting ME.
