What is Hemolytic uremic syndrome?

The hemolytic uremic syndrome is an uncommon condition caused by the bacteria Escherichia coli (E. coli), which is often found in contaminated foods such as meat, dairy products, and juice. When E. coli bacteria trapped in the digestive system produce toxins that reach the bloodstream, hemolytic uremic syndrome ensues. Toxins begin to attack red blood cells and harm the blood vessel lining, particularly the glomeruli. Most E. coli infections cause vomiting, stomach pains, and bloody diarrhea in youngsters for 2 to 3 days. Children who develop hemolytic uremic syndrome become pale, tired, and irritable. In certain children, the hemolytic uremic syndrome might result in renal failure.
