• Diarrhea

Other symptoms that may accompany the above include:

• Headache
• Abdominal pain
• aching muscles of the hands or feet
• Have a high temperature (over 38C)

How long Norovirus infection last?

Infection symptoms usually disappear within a couple of days, but it is possible symptoms may persist longer in some people.

What are the causes of norovirus?

Regular hand washing, cleaning of surfaces and good food hygiene can help prevent the spread of the virus.

Special treatment is available to rid the body of norovirus, but the immune system of your body should be able to fight the virus.

It is important to treat and prevent dehydration, drink fluid regularly. Doctors recommend consuming more than 6-8 glasses of fluids a day. This is because vomiting and diarrhea exhaust fluid in your body.

Norovirus and control of diabetes

Viral infections usually make it difficult to control diabetes. If you have contracted norovirus, it is likely that the blood glucose level will rise higher than usual, as the body tries to fight the virus.

Prevention of dehydration

Vomiting and diarrhea lead to loss of fluid from the body, which can make dehydration more likely. In addition, the infection can raise blood glucose levels, which can cause more mochevyvedeniya than usual, which may also increase the likelihood of dehydration.

It is therefore important to regularly take fluids and pay attention to the symptoms of dehydration, such as dry mouth, dark urine, or more headaches.
