Acute gastroenteritis in children: symptoms and treatment, diet and other aspects

The main aspects of acute gastroenteritis in children

If a child complains of strong pain in the abdomen, it is worthwhile to be alert – what if this condition is caused by a dangerous cause? Such thoughts are fully justified, since a lot of diseases, including acute gastroenteritis known in the people as gastric flu, can provoke pain. The disease implies the course of an acute inflammatory process, localized on the mucous membrane of the stomach and small intestine. Experts say that this is one of the most frequent reasons for seeking help in a hospital. The stories are known cases of mass epidemics, which even carried away the lives of some patients, so that serious consideration of the problem is simply necessary. Most often, the disease attacks the most vulnerable people, namely children, the elderly and pregnant women. At the beginning of the 20th century, high mortality rates of patients with this diagnosis were recorded, but thanks to modern methods of treatment, it became much easier to deal with the problem. We will find out what triggers the disease in children, how it manifests itself and, most importantly, what does the treatment of gastroenteritis mean.

The main cause of the disease is the activity of the pathogenic microorganism. Provoke the development of gastroenteritis can rotavirus, salmonella, noravirus, shigella and other bacteria. The most common pathogen is rotavirus, which has several varieties. It should be noted that this bacterium is very resistant to the external environment and survives well in it. Its vitality in warm water it retains up to several months, on vegetables and fruits – up to a month, in feces – for more than six months.


If you adhere to all the recommendations, the symptoms will begin to subside by the third day, but this does not mean that immediately you need to re-enter the heavy and harmful for the stomach products in the diet. For a full recovery and recovery will take several weeks.
