Summaries for Dysentery

PubMed Health : 63 Infectious diarrhea: Diarrhea is very common: In Germany, for instance, adults get it once a year on average, and it is even more common in children. It is usually caused by viruses, the most common of which are the highly contagious norovirus and rotavirus. Infectious diarrhea can also come from bacteria such as Salmonella or Campylobacter. In normal cases of diarrhea, you can usually just replace the fluids you lose and wait until the infection goes away. But more severe or longer lasting diarrhea needs to be treated because it can lead to the loss of dangerously high levels of fluid and salt, especially in young children and older people.

MalaCards based summary: Dysentery, also known as infectious diarrhea, is related to shigellosis and campylobacteriosis, and has symptoms including diarrhea An important gene associated with Dysentery is ALB (Albumin), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Innate Immune System and Akt Signaling. The drugs Loperamide and Sodium citrate have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include colon, liver and small intestine, and related phenotypes are homeostasis/metabolism and neoplasm

Disease Ontology: 11 An intestinal infectious disease that involves inflammation of the intestines, especially colon, due to chemical irritants, bacteria, protozoa, or parasitic worms, which results in severe diarrhea with passage of mucus and blood.

Drugs & Therapeutics for Dysentery

PubMed Health treatment related to Dysentery: 63

You lose fluids and electrolytes when you have diarrhea , so it is important to replace them. For acute , non-severe diarrhea you usually just need something like tea with sugar and some salted crackers. Foods that are gentle on the stomach is recommended too, such as rice, bananas or rusk bread. Some people also avoid coffee, fruit juices, sodas, alcohol and fatty foods to keep from irritating their bowel even more. Acute , non-severe diarrhea does not require special treatment in adults and teenagers. But it is a good idea for young children and older people, as well as people with more severe diarrhea, to replace fluids and electrolytes by using oral rehydration salts (electrolyte /glucose solutions) from the pharmacy. These are powders containing salts, minerals and glucose that can be dissolved in water. If these solutions are not available (for instance, while traveling) the following ingredients can be stirred into one liter of bottled or boiled water: Five tablespoons of sugar One and a half level tablespoons of salt One glass of packaged orange juice In addition to drinking fluids and using other treatments , foods or dietary supplements that have probiotic microorganisms (probiotics ) in them can help to make the diarrhea go away faster. Depending on how severe the symptoms are and how long they last, other treatments may be considered too: Drugs like loperamide or racecadotril can help to slow down the activity of the bowel and lower the number of times you need to go to the bathroom. Loperamide is not suitable for children under the age of twelve years, and racecadotril is prescription-only for children. Sometimes certain types of yeast tablets (Perenterol) are also recommended. These tablets are thought to help the body get rid of the germs faster and to support natural gut flora. Charcoal tablets dissolved in water can also be taken to relieve diarrhea symptoms. But there is a lack of good-quality research in this area so no conclusions can be drawn about the benefits and harms of these treatment options. Antibiotics are only an option if the infection is bacterial. They can't fight viruses .
