What to do if you are Suffering from Gastroenteritis ?

Gastroenteritis can lead to serious implications if not treated at the right time. It is a disease that affects the stomach, large and small intestines lining and is usually accompanied by vomiting and diarrhea, stomach cramps and mild fever. These symptoms often disappear between six to 3 days and it is good to seek medical advice even if the symptoms have disappeared. These symptoms are caused by toxins that are produced by bacteria which can be found in the food that we eat or they may be as a result of swelling of the intestine when there is a virus or bacteria present.

What you have to do if you are suffering from gastroenteritis is to drink a lot of fluids so that it does not irritate your gut worsening the condition. You should look for the more effective remedies like dilate salt and sugar which are more effective than water.
