Infection by Fasciola hepatica can be prevented by not consuming raw plants containing metacercariae. This can be accomplished by inspecting the plants, especially watercress, very carefully for the metacercariae or more effectively by not eating plants grown in areas where herbivorous mammals (especially sheep) are found.
Prevention involves preventing the ingress of the parasite into the human body. And for this you need to follow what kind of fish you eat, and properly carry out its processing. Fish can be decontaminated by freezing, salting and heating (heat treatmen

Fasciola hepatica
Fasciola hepatica, also known as the common liver fluke or sheep liver fluke, is a parasitic trematode (fluke or flatworm, a type ofhelminth) of the class Trematoda, phylum Platyhelminthes that infects the livers of various mammals, including humans.

Circulating in the nature
The first "intermediate hosts" of the parasite are freshwater snails Bithynia inflata (synonym: Codiella inflata), Bithynia troschelii and Bithynia leachii. The second "intermediate hosts" are freshwater fish, followed by the final host, which are fish-eating mammals such as felines and humans.
Opisthorchis felineus

Opisthorchis felineus
Fasciola hepatica

How can you detect it?
Confirm the diagnosis definitely only after 4-6 weeks, when the fluke will begin to lay eggs. Then they can be found in the stool and duodenal liquid. If the infection occurred a long time and fluke an adult, you can find it with the help of research methods as ultrasound, computed tomography.
Fasciola hepatica

Adult hepatica lives in small passages of the liver of many kinds of mammals, especially ruminants and begins to produce eggs. Up to 25,000 eggs per day per fluke can be produced, and, in a light infection, up to 500,000 eggs per day can be deposited onto pasture by a single sheep.
