Pregnancy food poisoning when to call doctor

The food may be unevenly contaminated, so not everyone will consume the same amount of organisms. In some cases, foods or organisms are different today, according to the Institute of Food Technologists. If you have bloody stool, fever, severe abdominal pain, or prolonged or severe vomiting or diarrhea, or are very dehydrated, you should see a doctor.
Raw foods and undercooked meats and seafood, as well as inadequately refrigerated foods, are riskiest, since refrigeration retards the growth of bacteria, and cooking at high temperatures kills most of them. The microorganisms that cause spoilage are different from those that cause food poisoning, which seldom produce perceptible changes in food.
The elderly, young children, pregnant women, and anyone with a weakened immune system should seek medical attention even for milder symptoms.


Don't expect them to accept responsibility, but if other people also call, the restaurant will know there is a problem. Toxins in the food (such as mushroom toxin and toxins from some fish) can also cause illness. Thus, food that looks and smells okay is just as likely to make you sick as food that looks spoiled. These "stomach bugs" are highly contagious and travel in feces; food preparers or handlers who don't wash their hands thoroughly after using the bathroom are the most common source of outbreaks. It’s hard to pinpoint the cause of food poisoning, or even to be sure that it is food poisoning. You get infected from contaminated food or water or from touching contaminated objects and then touching your mouth or nose.


Food is much safer today, thanks in large part to preservatives and better knowledge about food handling and preparation.
People with impaired or underdeveloped immunity, such as the elderly, young children, pregnant women, and those with certain chronic diseases (such as cancer or HIV), can become sick from smaller doses.
