|rotavirus can be very serious, even fatal. Your baby could be up for days with little sleep, vomitting and diarhea. It can last for 10 days until it starts to get better. It could lead to dehydration and can make life miserable for everyone. It could lead to hospitalization for dehydration.|
Hmm, maybe that's why all the kids are getting sick, because of the vaccinated kiddies, eh? They just walk around shedding the viruses, kids get sick, everyone gets scared about RSV so they get their kids vaccinated...(rinse, repeat, rinse, repeat). It's a win win situation for the vax manufacturers.
|OP, less than 20 a year die due to rotavirus...out of the thousands who get it.|
|Home Management of Acute Diarrhea
Treatment with ORS is simple and enables management of uncomplicated cases of diarrhea at home, regardless of etiologic agent. As long as caregivers are instructed properly regarding signs of dehydration or are able to determine when children appear markedly ill or appear not to be responding to treatment, therapy should begin at home. Early intervention can reduce such complications as dehydration and malnutrition. Early administration of ORS leads to fewer office, clinic, and emergency department (ED) visits (37) and to potentially fewer hospitalizations and deaths.
|Recommendations for maintenance dietary therapy depend on the age and diet history of the patient. Breastfed infants should continue nursing on demand. Formula-fed infants should continue their usual formula immediately upon rehydration in amounts sufficient to satisfy energy and nutrient requirements.|
|Children die from the virus, too. There are always risks with vaxing and not vaxing.|
|The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is notifying health care providers and consumers about 28 post-marketing reports of intussusception following administration of Rotavirus, Live, Oral, Pentavalent vaccine (trade name RotaTeq), manufactured by Merck and Co., Inc. Intussusception is a serious and potentially life-threatening condition that occurs when the intestine gets blocked or twisted.|
|Also, the CDC thinks some (or most?) of those deaths are possibly preventable with proper at-home treatment.|
