Overview of Gastroenteritis

The “stomach flu” is a common term for this illness. You most likely got gastroenteritis rather than the flu. Inflammation of the gut lining brought on by a virus, bacteria, or parasites is known as gastroenteritis. The second most prevalent illness in the United States is gastroenteritis caused by a virus. A norovirus infection is the most common culprit. An infected person’s contact with contaminated food or drink might transmit it. Washing your hands frequently is the greatest way to avoid infection.

Diarrhea, vomiting, headache, fever, and chills are all signs of gastroenteritis. Most people are able to bounce back on their own.

Dehydration is the most prevalent side effect of gastroenteritis, which can lead to further complications. Not drinking enough fluids to replenish the fluids lost through vomiting and diarrhoea might result in dehydration. Babies, small children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems are especially at risk of dehydration.

What are the different kinds of gastrointestinal illnesses?

Viral gastroenteritis can be caused by a variety of different viruses.

  • Infectious gastroenteritis is the most prevalent cause of Norovirus. Symptoms often begin within two days after exposure and remain for three to eight days.
  • Adenovirus
  • Astrovirus

Do you know what causes gastroenteritis?

Inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract’s inner lining is the hallmark of viral gastroenteritis. Rotavirus, norovirus, and adenovirus can all cause it. Rotavirus vaccination is an option for infants. Nausea, vomiting, and watery diarrhoea are all signs of gastroenteritis caused by a virus.

Viral gastroenteritis: what are my treatment options?

Viral gastroenteritis usually resolves on its own, without the need for medical intervention. Dehydration can result from depletion of fluids and electrolytes in viral gastroenteritis. Taking over-the-counter medications to alleviate your symptoms is an option in some circumstances.

Following a restricted diet does not aid in the treatment of viral gastroenteritis. Viral gastroenteritis can cause vomiting or a loss of appetite for a brief period of time. Generally speaking, you can resume your normal diet as soon as your appetite returns, even if you still have diarrhoea. Find out what to eat if you have a stomach bug caused by a virus.

Never put off seeing a doctor if your child shows signs of viral gastroenteritis, such as vomiting or diarrhoea.
