Protein foods such as eggs, chicken, fish, meat, minced meat, milk and dairy products, and ice cream are responsible for food poisoning. Diarrhea may occur 8 or 24 hours after eating food. The patient first has nausea and then vomiting. There may also be abdominal pain in the form of fever and cramps. In some food poisonings, the event may occur 3 hours after eating the food.

To be protected

Bacteria and their toxins that reproduce in food are responsible for food poisoning. In these days when we live in hot summer days, the foods left outside can spoil very quickly. For this, we should put the food that we will consume later in the refrigerator without waiting outside.

Treatment

Food poisoning usually goes away on its own within 1-2 days. During this period, sufficient liquids (such as water, ayran and mineral water) should be consumed. Most of the time there is no need to take any medication. But sometimes it may be necessary. This should be decided by the doctor. If fluid cannot be taken by mouth due to nausea and vomiting, fluid can be given intravenously in the hospital. In addition, if the complaints do not go away on their own in 1-2 days, if there is high fever, bloody diarrhea and a tendency to sleep, you should go to the hospital immediately. It is also beneficial for those with chronic diseases to apply to a health institution from the beginning.
