Enteritis is an inflammation of the small intestine caused by either a bacterial or viral infection, usually accompanied by abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. It is a very common form of gastrointestinal distress and can be very painful and disruptive to one’s life and well-being. Enteritis is an important condition to be aware of, as it can be an indicator of other underlying disease and can lead to serious malnutrition and dehydration if not treated promptly and properly. Treatment often includes antibiotics and hydration, and sometimes changes to diet.
