Preparing for your appointment

If you or your child is experiencing symptoms of HUS after several days of diarrhea, call your doctor immediately and be prepared to answer these questions:

  • Have you noticed blood in the diarrhea?
  • Have you or your child had fever, swelling or decreased urine output?
  • How long have you or your child been experiencing these symptoms?
  • How long has it been since you or your child urinated?

What you can do in the meantime

If you or your child has an illness that causes vomiting or diarrhea, it's a good idea to try to replace the fluids that have been lost with an oral rehydrating solution, such as CeraLyte70, Pedialyte or Oralyte.
