I always thought that if you had Giardia once, then it stayed with you

what I thought
was Giardia over the years from visiting various countries like Nepal, India
etc etc.

My visit to the doctor and lots of test showed I did not have Giardia in my
system and
a O & P test (I know the P stands for parasites) came out clean as a
whistle. So I can
only conclude that I had plain old diarrhea in all those countries and never

For what its worth........

countries, the only place I ever had trouble was in Nairobi, Kenya. I had
occasional travelers diarrhea there, but nothing serious.
