HUS has diff types: Most of the cases that relate to e.Coli or sigella food poisoning, hemorrhagic diarrhea if severe, recover spontaneously and not even see the doctor. The ones who have to see a doc are the severe cases d/ t e.Coli or unknown cause not relating to diarrhea. These mostly need plasma exchange. A new report suggests that the diarrhea mechanism may be blocked with oral manganese. It may not help hus.

It is a serious infectious complication that can actually be made worse with antibiotics.

What are the issues with hemolytic uremic syndrome?

Dr. Herbert Duvivier
Hematology and Oncology 33 years experience
Concern about kidney: Hemolytic uremic syndrome (hus) is a condition that results from the abnormal premature destruction of red blood cells. Blood cells start to clog the filtering system in the kidneys, which may eventually cause the life-threatening kidney failure seen in hus. Most cases of hus develop in children after colon infection due to e.Coli. Adults can also get hus but often the reason is not due to e.Coli.
