Submitted by on August 23, 2011 – 2:31 amNo Comment




Diarrhea is a medical condition marked by passing of loose and watery tools for over 3 times within a day. Diarrhea might be caused by bacterial, viral and parasitic infections. Chronic diarrhea might also occur due to IBS or irritable bowel syndrome. This article will inform you about the common triggers of bacterial diarrhea.

Salmonella: In the USA, 42% of the cases of bacterial infections triggered by food born bacteria occur due to Salmonella. These bacteria can infect food items through feces of both human beings and animals and this is possible due to the low quality of sanitary procedures involved in food production. Till date, studies have found evidences of the fact that Salmonella bacteria have over 2,300 serotypes, out of which the two most widely available types in United States are Salmonella Typhimurium and Salmonella Enteritidis.

Campylobacter jejuni: The next most common trigger of bacterial diarrhea is Campylobacter jejuni. This bacterium starts growing due to mishandling of the raw poultry items during food preparation; Campylobacter jejuni is also known to cause infection if the poultry items are not cooked thoroughly.

Shigella: An individual suffering from diarrhea triggered by shigella bacteria usually gets bloody stool. This bacterial infection spreads only if one comes in direct contact with drinking water infected by it, contaminated food or infected stool. Children between the age of 2 and 4 years are more susceptible towards developing bacterial diarrhea due to shigella. The occurrence of this bacterial diarrhea type is more frequent in the developing countries; this is because, majority of these countries possess common and unhygienic water supplies, overcrowding and unsanitary conditions.

Escherichia coli: The common name of this bacterium is E. coli. Infections occurring from Escherichia coli bacteria rarely trigger diarrhea in human being. The most common sources of this bacterium, from where humans get infected with it include milk products such as cheese, drinking water, raw milk etc.
