So you’ve got diarrhoea

When you’ve got gastro, your intestines are going into overdrive resulting in symptoms like diarrhoea, wind, bloating and cramps.

An acute bout of diarrhoea can be caused by viral or bacterial infections, food intolerances, stress or side effects from certain medications. Whatever the cause, you want to stop it fast.

It is also important to rehydrate as your body loses water and important electrolytes through diarrhoea. Drinking water helps but specially formulated oral rehydration solutions can restore both lost fluids and electrolytes.

Symptoms of acute gastro can develop quickly but usually resolve in about 3 to 5 days. Diarrhoea that persists for longer than 14 days can indicate an underlying medical condition so it is important to speak to a healthcare professional for medical advice.

Had Gastro for more than 14 days? Speak to your GP now.
