Now that people are back to work from vacations and the
school year is in full swing, it's time for "IT" to rear
its ugly head again sometime soon.
I'm talking about Viral Gastroenteritis--better known as
the "stomach bug" or "stomach flu."
Most of us are familiar with the symptoms--major diarrhea
and vomiting, fever, headache, chills and wicked abdominal
pain. About the only good thing that can be said about it
is it's a quick way to shed a few pounds ;-)
Viral gastroenteritis is highly contagious. The viruses
that are usually responsible (rotavirus and norovirus) can
be transmitted directly from an infected person. But you
don't need bodily contact--it's enough to just touch a
utensil or door handle that the infected person has
And viral gastroenteritis (the flu bug) is sneaky...
People who've had it can pass it to others for a whole
week AFTER their symptoms have disappeared.
That's why outbreaks of it occur in situations where food
handlers serve large numbers of people, like restaurants,
school cafeterias and college dorms. The person serving
the food thinks they're recovered because they feel better,
yet they spread the rotavirus or norovirus to everyone
whose food they're touching.
Viral gastroenteritis takes its toll on adults, but is
even more dangerous for kids under 2 years of age.
Symptoms can last for 8 days or more and small children can
risk life-threatening dehydration if they don't get enough
The typical treatment for viral gastroenteritis really
isn't treatment at all--just rest, drink fluids and eat
bland foods as tolerated while you wait it out.
But that's not all you can do.
Probiotics are showing great promise in the treatment and
prevention of viral gastroenteritis (the flu).
A study published in the Journal of Pediatric
Gastroenterology and Nutrition was conducted in several
European medical centers on 287 children age 1 month to 3
years, all of whom had been hospitalized with diarrhea.
140 of the children were given the standard electrolyte
solution for hydration, and the other 147 were given the
solution with Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG added. The
parents of the kids did not know which solution their child
had been given.
On average, the duration of the diarrhea was reduced by
nearly 13 hours in the L. rhamnosus group. And for the
kids in the group whose diarrhea was caused by rotavirus,
the diarrhea was reduced by a full 24 hours.
The probiotic group also had shorter hospital stays overall.
In addition to helping to curb diarrhea caused by
rotavirus and norovirus, L. rhamnosus GG has shown to help
relieve constipation, prevent lactose intolerance,
alleviate symptoms of IBD and IBS and ease yeast and
