    Food poisoning may be a relatively common complaint, but it can lead to serious complications and even become life threatening if it goes untreated.  Many elderly and infirm people who develop food poisoning may fail to seek medical advice for this distressing condition and can become dehydrated rapidly after symptoms develop.

    What is food poisoning?

    Food poisoning is defined as the consumption of food or drinks which have become contaminated with dangerous pathogens such as bacteria or viruses. Once consumed, these foods can become hazardous to health due to the dangerously high number of bacteria or viruses that they contain.

    What are the symptoms of food poisoning?

    Food poisoning symptoms usually develop rapidly and the onset of symptoms can be violent and unexpected. The body’s immune response to food poisoning can be rapid and symptoms may include:

    • Nausea
    • Vomiting
    • Diarrhoea
    • Stomach cramps
    • Fever
    • Lethargy
    • Headache

    Which types of food are most susceptible to causing food poisoning?

    Certain food groups have a higher risk of becoming contaminated than others and these types of food should be avoided by pregnant women, the elderly and those with a compromised immune system.

    1. Unpasteurised milk and soft cheeses such as Brie, Camembert and blue soft cheeses which may contain high levels of Listeria
    2. Raw and lightly cooked eggs such as mousses, souffles and mayonnaise as they may contain Salmonella bacteria
    3. Undercooked meat and poultry such as chicken, pork and turkey which may contain Campylobacter and Salmonella bacteria
    4. Untreated drinking water can contain high levels of Campylobacter and Salmonella bacteria
    5. Shellfish can contain high levels of Campylobacter bacteria and should be avoided unless freshly prepared and cooked thoroughly

    How is food poisoning treated?

    Food poisoning should be diagnosed by a medical practitioner who may recommend rest, drinking plenty of clear fluids and eating small amounts of easily digested foods when symptoms subside.

    It is important that oral rehydration salts are taken at the onset of symptoms to prevent dehydration developing. This can be dangerous and needs to be treated promptly. Oral rehydration salts contain minerals, salts and fluids to replenish the lost supplies in the body from the vomiting and diarrhoea.
