A bacterium commonly found in the intestines of humans and other animals, where it usually causes no harm. Some strains can cause severe food poisoning, especially in old people and children.
Escherichia coli (E.coli) is one of several types of bacteria that normally inhabit the intestine of humans and animals. Unfortunately some strains of E. coli are capable of causing disease in certain conditions when the immune system is compromised or disease may result from an environmental exposure.
There are many types of E. coli, and most of them are harmless. However, some strains of E. coli can cause bloody diarrhea and others may also cause severe anemia or kidney failure, which could lead to death. Other strains of E. coli can activate urinary tract infections or infections of other organs.
You get an E. coli infection by coming into contact with the feces or stool of humans or animals. This can take place when you drink contaminated water or eat food that has been polluted by feces.
You may want to consider this test if you suffer from:
- Abdominal cramping
- Sudden, severe watery diarrhea that may change to bloody stools
- Loss of appetite/nausea
- Vomiting (this symptom is less common)
