Caused by eating food or drinking water that is contaminated by bacterium Vibrio Cholerae, Cholera is a widely spread infectious disease that can cause severe watery diarrhoea that can lead to extreme dehydration. Cholera can even be fatal if not treated at the right time. Cholera is most common in places that have poor sanitation facilities. The most prominent symptom of the disease is watery diarrhoea with or without vomiting. Rapid heart rate, increased thirst and muscle cramps are other symptoms.
HOW IS CHOLERA DIAGNOSED?
The diagnosis is usually carried out by the general physician or a specialist from the gastrointestinal department. Lab tests will be carried out to test the urine, stool and blood for the presence of the bacteria as well as physical examination.
HOW IS CHOLERA TREATED?
Antibiotics are quite commonly available to treat cholera but because the condition can cause dehydration very quickly, immediate treatment is a must. Prevention is always better and the best way to do so is to maintain a clean and hygienic environment, particularly with water that you consume.
