A 14 year old boy who s maintained a perfect grade point average throughout his entire school years, was hospitalized after being infected with the norovirus. Since then, his grades have been spiraling downward and no one can figure out why? Is it possible that the severe nature of his illness, might have caused damage to brain tissue, affecting his cognitive abilities?

I had norovirus on vacation and was vomiting and diarrhea for 24 hours and then flew on a plane and did not drink or eat much. 24 hours later I had my yearly labs and my creatinine was 1.57. It is usually 1.1 to 1.3 and has been for 20 years. I am 65 years old and very, very active... bike 3 hours daily, also use weights three times a week and swim. Doctor thinks test was high because of dehydration. I take lipitor and my cholesterol is 147. Should I be worried. Wants test repeated in November.

My 3 year old son had a bout with the norovirus . After days of diarrhea and vomiting, he started eating some solids. His first two bowel movements were clay colored, but then went back to normal. I have read that clay colored stools are a sign of bile trouble with the liver. Should we be concerned with the brief bout of clay colored stool?
