E. coli poisoning

E. coli poisoning

E. coli poisoning is caused by the Escherichia coli bacteria. There are different strains of E. coli bacteria but the strain that causes food poisoning releases toxins into the blood stream causing inflammation of the large intestine and symptoms such as abdominal cramping, diarrhoea and vomiting. Treatment is focused on rehydration, taking antibiotics and patient education on food intake and preparation to prevent future attacks.
