Food poisoning is not something anyone wants to think of when they are out to eat at a nice restaurant or when they are enjoying a nice home-cooked meal but food poisoning can occur whenever food is present! If you have believed you have developed food poisoning, Urgent Care Of Mercer County is here to help you feel better!

Symptoms

Food poisoning symptoms are hard to overlook because they will cause you to feel very ill, very quickly. Some symptoms you may experience are the following:

  • Stomach cramps
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Weakness
  • Loss of appetite

If you are experiencing diarrhea and vomiting make sure to stay hydrated to the best of your ability. Nausea and vomiting will induce dehydration, which can lead to more serious medical issues and complications.

We can test you for food poisoning with a simple stool test. The results are accurate and fast.

How to stay away from food poisoning

Food poisoning stems from bacteria that grow on raw food in a semi-warm environment. The bacteria typically happens on a warm surface and can be transferred with touch. If you think you have eaten something wrong, don’t force yourself to eat any more of it.

How do we treat food poisoning?

Food poisoning can be treated with a pure sports drink and some nutrients. It is critical to replenish electrolytes if you have been vomiting. We will monitor you and make sure you are okay to go home! If you have any more questions or concerns, please feel free to CALL US: 609-890-4100
