These are rod-shaped bacteria that live without oxygen (anaerobes). Their main function is to prevent the formation of harmful microorganisms and create vitamin "K". Although a certain pathogenic E. coli can cause dangerous poisoning, such as dysbiosis, indigestion.

Escherichia coli are a pure, isolated culture of bacteria (a large accumulation of strains). From the very birth of children, they settle in the intestines and stay there for the rest of their lives. Some strains are used prophylactically in young children in order to increase their immunity.

There are two types


“Non-pathogenic Escherichia coli” and “Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli”.

The enteropathogenic bacteria Escherichia, that is, E. coli, cause bowel disease. By connecting with the outer cells of the large intestine, bacteria proliferate and alter the normal functioning of the intestine. A very large amount of liquid is formed, which contains electrolytes.

In addition, the pathogenic E. coli can destroy the blood vessels in the mucous membrane (namely in the large intestine), dense blood formations and fibrin (non-globular protein) appear, which interfere with the proper functioning of blood vessels in the intestine. Because of this, “hemorrhagic colitis” appears.

If these bacteria enter the abdominal cavity, it can give rise to the development of "peritonitis". And getting into the blood, the bacteria can cause the cause of the formation of pus in the gallbladder, in the kidneys, in the mammary gland.

E. coli (pathogenic) infects the kidneys and urinary organs. Also, E. coli, together with other bacteria, can cause inflammation of the female organs (vagina, ovaries) and male organs (testicles, epididymis or prostate gland).

A dangerous diagnosis in children "meningitis", which can cause these bacteria if they enter the body of a small child during childbirth. "Hemolytic uremic syndrome" can occur in a child, elderly people or women (after pregnancy).

What causes the infection?


Most often, infection with this disease occurs due to food (improper storage of food, improper thermomechanical processing, dirty or not washed fruits and vegetables, fresh milk or milk “bought at the bazaar”, lack of personal hygiene).

With existing diseases (pancreatitis, colitis), this diagnosis may develop (intestinal dysbiosis). Taking a lot of antibiotics also develops the disease (changes in the intestinal microflora).

Symptoms caused by E. coli. Somewhere in two or three, the infection will become known.

Enteropathogenic E. coli (EPCP) is most likely found in children (under one year old). The first signs: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea. The child does not want to eat, the stomach does not take food, sleep is disturbed. The disease process is long, but is mild.

The symptoms of enterotoxigenic bacteria are similar to those of common poisoning. There is severe diarrhea, a constant feeling of nausea, severe pain in the abdomen. Both children and adults carry the disease.

Enteroinvasive bacteria, entering the large intestine, multiply very quickly and destroy the inner lining of the intestine. Then they find themselves in the blood. It manifests itself in the form of a strong watery stool mixed with bloody discharge, sharp pains in the abdomen (especially the left side).

An enterohaemorrhagic bacterium infects the capillaries of the colon mucosa and causes “hemorrhagic colitis”. In difficult cases, "necrosis" (destruction of the epithelium) develops. Feces with large blood clots.

Hemolytic-uremic Escherichia coli occur due to low immunity. Poisoning symptoms are severe. Blood clots appear in the stool. "Necrosis" develops, renal failure, urination may decrease, and then stop altogether. Red blood cells (erythrocytes) are damaged, and hemoglobin levels decrease.

E. coli in children


Dairy products. Kefir is boiled in a steam (water bath), cottage cheese and whey itself are obtained, which should be drunk three times a day for half a glass.

Sour milk and kefir contain many good qualities for the normalization of intestinal microflora.

An earthen pear or Jerusalem artichoke is cut into small pieces, filled with milk and water, mixed with butter, followed by wheat flour. Everything is mixed, you can eat with spoons.

Cinquefoil goose has the ability to kill these bacteria. A small amount is boiled with water, cooled and consumed in a third of a glass, three times a day.

To get rid of inflammation, you need to pour water in a series and boil for about fifteen minutes. One tablespoon is taken three times a day.
