😷 Gastro has descended on the Gold Coast 😷

But what actually is Gastroenteritis aka “Gastro”? Gastro is a short-term illness triggered by infection and inflammation of the digestive system. The main symptoms include, tummy cramps, diarrhoea, vomiting and feeling generally unwell🤕

Infectious gastroenteritis is usually caused by viruses, bacteria or parasites. Infection happens when the bacteria, virus or parasite is ingested, either by eating or drinking. So it is really important that you wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after you go to the toilet, before preparing food and keep your kitchen surfaces clean. If you have been in contact with someone with similar symptoms always be sure to wash your hands to reduce transmission.

If you’ve got gastro, it usually settles by itself after 5-7 days, it’s vital during this time that you keep up your fluids and take oral rehydration therapy from the chemist. You may not feel like eating but when your appetite slowly comes back, start with plain food such as toast.

If you’re not sure whether you have gastro or need further help or advice, pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy x

Are you aged between 15-19 years old?

If the answer if yes come and have your free meningococcal vaccine today!

What is the vaccine for❓

The vaccine will help to reduce the rate of meningococcal disease which is a rare but serious infection that can invade the body from the throat or nose.

Why is it important❓

Most people affected by meningococcal disease fully recover. However for some people it can lead to long term health complications such as limb deformity and brain damage.

Why should I have it❓

Some of the highest rates of meningococcal disease are amongst those aged between 15-19 and so having a vaccine will help to reduce this rate.

Will it be painful❓

You should expect some discomfort when having the vaccine but this will usually be temporary and you’ll be able to get on with your usual activities.

Where can I have it❓

Book in today for your vaccine which is government funded 💉

Feel free to see me in clinic today if you have any further questions.

Take care & stay healthy 😊
