Chronic giardiasis is a condition that can last for month, or even years. The symptoms can be different from those who develop an acute Giardia infection. Chronic Giardia symptoms can include:
- Increased gas (flatus)
- Loose stools
- Slowed growth
These chronic symptoms may come and go or always be present.
