1 Stomach flu 2014: Stomach flu makes us step out of line.

Stomach flu symptoms 2014

Every year the hospitals are visited urgently by thousand patients with gastroenteritis (known as stomach flu) diagnoses. Reasons for the disorder vary, but the result is one – total isolation from normal life for at least ten days.

Gastroenteritis (in Greek “gaster” – stomach and “enteron” - large intestine) better known as “stomach flu”, although it is not related to the typical virus flu. It is an inflammation of the stomach and small intestine. In more than half of the cases stomach flu is caused by Norovirus or food poisoning. Pathogenic bacteria like salmonella, Shigella, Escherichia coli, staphylococci get within the body due to consumption of improperly prepared foods. The intoxication result in disrupting the synthesis of digestive enzymes, worsen digestion and metabolic processes.

The first symptoms of the stomach flu occur at the same maximum on the second day of the contamination. The progression of the disease depends upon the viruses or bacteria that have caused it.

Symptoms of bacterial gastroenteritis are

  • high body temperature;
  • headache;
  • muscle pain;
  • spasmodic abdominal pain and diarrhea;
  • frequent vomiting.

The symptoms of viral gastroenteritis are

  • strong rheum;
  • cough;
  • sore throat;
  • high body temperature;
  • headache;
  • vomiting;
  • dry mouth.

Self-healing is absolutely forbidden!

The most dangerous consequence of the Stomach flu is dehydration. Because of frequent vomiting and diarrhea, body water is lost fast and important minerals with it. This could lead to low blood pressure, seizures and if not medically assisted promptly, could lead to kidney failure. Therefore in the presence of these stomach flu symptoms it is important not to lose precious time and go to see a medic. Self-healing is absolutely forbidden! Frequent water consummation will only quench the thirst, but will not restore the salt water balance in the organism. That is why patients with stomach flu get treated in the infection department. After the results of the made researches, which determine the causative agent for the disease, the required treatment is appointed.

Dehydration symptoms

  • dryness in the mouth;
  • abnormal urination;
  • weakness;
  • drowsiness;
  • soreness;

Stomach flu Treatment

Treatment of stomach flu begins with a gastric lavage with a special solution. Lots of water must be consummated after this procedure. In case of strong general intoxication, rehydration therapy is conducted to restore the salt water balance in the organism. In case of viral gastroenteritis, antiviral drugs are prescribed. After that patients take medications for restoration of the intestinal flora. The solution for a fast recovery is rest in the bed and a strong diet. The menu must contain non fat broths, oatmeal with water, biscuits and unsweetened tee. If these recommendations of the doctors are fallowed strictly and after the ten days procedures of the gastrointestinal tract, the patient can fully recover and don’t worry for any adverse consequences in the future. Exception make patients with low levels if antibodies, where the infection can repeat itself or transform into a chronic form with repetitive cycles of exacerbation and remission.
Children, after going through the viral gastroenteritis, develop a comparative immunity for the disease, which protects them from another contamination.


Stomach flu is one of the diseases, which can be easily prevented. For a specific prophylactic of the rotavirus infections, there are two vaccines, which have passed clinical tests. Both contain weakened live viruses and are taken by mouth. To avoid infection, follow these basic hygiene rules:
  • Wash your hands before feeding.
  • Look carefully for the expiry date of the foods and check the temperature and the conditions they have been kept in.
  • Drink only filtrated or bottled water, stop all ice drinks.
  • Prepare the products on a clean cutting board.
  • Thoroughly wash vegetables, fruits and greens.
  • Do not consume raw eggs.
A reason for the development of stomach flu could become the rotaviruses. They are very contagious. In 90% of cases, the contamination is transmitted by dirty hands. There is very low chance that the disease can be transmitted by air.

    Swine flu A H1N1 exhibits the same symptoms as seasonal flu. There are, however, small features, which we will outline below.

    From November through December 2013, CDC has received a number of reports of severe respiratory illness among young and middle-aged adults, many of whom were infected with influenza A (H1N1) pdm09 (pH1N1) virus. Multiple pH1N1-associated hospitalizations, including many requiring intensive care unit (ICU) admission, and some fatalities have been reported. The pH1N1 virus that emerged in 2009 caused more illness in children and young adults, compared to older adults, although severe illness was seen in all age groups. While it is not possible to predict which influenza viruses will predominate during the entire 2013-14 influenza season, pH1N1 has been the predominant circulating virus so far. For the 2013-14 season, if pH1N1 virus continues to circulate widely, illness that disproportionately affects young and middle-aged adults may occur.
    According to information from the website of the CDC!

    73 -year-old woman died in China of a new strain of bird flu - virus H10N8, Reuters reported. Case in Nanchang, capital of Jiangxi is single, and the risk that the virus will spread to people is small.

    The woman died on 6 December 2013 year as a result of respiratory failure and shock. She sought hospital treatment on November 30 with severe pneumonia.

    Bird flu strain H10N8 has not been detected in humans until now. In August, scientists reported the first case of transmission of viruses like H7N9 from person to person.

    People should not panic, because the virus is "fragile and limited", explains the doctor .

    In the boom of the avian flu strain H7N9 in China at least 139 people fell ill and 45 of them died. The degree of mortality dramatically decreases from the end of June to now. Cases of H7N9 were found in Hong Kong and Taiwan.

    Although China has previously detected H10N8 in wild and domestic birds, this is the first ever report of H10N8 isolated from a patient. Given the potentially unpredictable behaviour of influenza viruses, vigilance and close monitoring is needed.

    WHO reports that outside of China, the virus has been found in at least six countries (Italy, USA, Canada, South Korea, Sweden and Japan) in poultry since 1965 year. For people infected with flu virus strain H10N7 was reported from Egypt and Australia. All these patients were admitted with mild clinical signs have fully recovered.

    Clean cooking implements that have been in contact with raw meat before re-using.
    Wash hands regularly, especially after handling poultry, while cooking and before eating.
    Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
