Diagnosis

Your healthcare provider may suspect that you have trichinosis based on your symptoms. If you have eaten raw or undercooked meat, be sure to tell your healthcare provider. You can be diagnosed in the following ways:

 

  • A blood test that shows an increase in the number of a type of white blood cells called eosinophils
  • Examination of muscle tissue (biopsy) under a microscope to look for larvae
