Gastroenteritis:- Are you troubled by stomach cramps and diarrhea? This could be a stomach-related disease


Stomach pain, cramps and diarrhoea are very common problems. Many times we eat something which becomes difficult to digest. Because of this, we have to face such problems. However, after adopting comfort food or some home remedies, these problems also get cured. But if there are cramps, diarrhoea and excessive vomiting then ignoring it can be dangerous. This happens due to a stomach infection or flu. In medical language, we know it as gastroenteritis. Let us know about this in detail from health experts. DrManoj Gupta Head - Liver Transplant & Surgical Gastroenterology Psri Hospital is giving information about this.

What is gastroenteritis? 

DrManoj Gupta says that gastroenteritis is a serious problem related to digestion. Due to infection, swelling occurs in the digestive system. It occurs due to viral infection, parasite infection, bacterial infection or some medication. Experts say that the Nora virus and Rotavirus are the main causes of this infection. People often mistake it for food poisoning. However, the problem increases due to dehydration. Due to a lack of water, the patient has to be admitted to the hospital. In such a situation, whenever you feel any such symptoms, do not let there be a lack of water in the body. If there is no relief from symptoms within 24 hours, then a doctor should be contacted immediately.
