Treatment for food poisoning
Treatment for food poisoning is by restoring the fluids as well as electrolytes like potassium, sodium, chloride and magnesium. If food poisoning has caused diarrhea and vomiting, the patient must refrain from eating solid food and take more clear liquids. If the case is more severe, the patient might need aid in breathing and/or stop vomiting. If food poisoning is due to toxins from eating mushrooms or shell fish cleaning out the stomach might be necessary. Administering activated charcoal can aid in absorbing any toxin residues.
