ratings and reviews)
Leptospirosis, also known as Weil’s disease, is caused by bacteria from the genus Leptospira. Some of the common signs of Leptospirosis include mild flu-like symptoms like headache and chills, nausea, vomiting and loss of appetite, among others. Leptospirosis is spread to humans by contact with soil or water contaminated with the urine of certain animals.
HOW IS LEPTOSPIROSIS DIAGNOSED?
It is always advised to visit a Homeopath/General Physician to seek medical help and undergo a urine and blood test to check the cause of Leptospirosis. In some cases, the doctor may also perform X-Ray to see which other organs are affected.
HOW IS LEPTOSPIROSIS TREATED?
Most cases of Leptospirosis are mild and are treated with a five to seven-day course of antibiotic tablets. Penicillin or a tetracycline antibiotic called doxycycline is the preferred choice. Complicated or serious cases may need supportive care or treatment in a hospital's Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

Leptospirosis occurs worldwide, in both rural and urban areas and in temperate and tropical climates. It is an occupational hazard for people who work outdoors or with animals, such as rice and sugar-cane field workers, farmers, sewer workers, veterinarians, dairy workers and military personnel. It is also a recreational hazard to those who swim or wade in contaminated waters. In endemic areas, the number of leptospirosis cases may peak during the rainy season and even may reach epidemic proportions in case of flooding.
