According to a recent research performed by Professor Russell Viner at the UCL Institute of Child Health, among children who are attacked by one of the most common type of bacterial meningitis in the UK - meningococcal group B disease (MenB)meningitis; one in three are on a higher risk of attaining mental health problems later in life.
The study claims that there are certain hidden after-effects of meningitis that attack children and adults later in life and make them suffer either from anxiety else some other behavioural disorder.
In addition, there is an impact over the memory of meningitis sufferers also. This could be either long term or short term. Many of them are likely to experience epilepsy too.
Therefore it is commonly seen that children who once are attacked by this bacteria are quite slow in their studies and don't have a strong IQ level also. They are in fact, at a five times higher risk of having speech and communication problems, which later could affect their educational achievements in life.
As said by Sue Davie, Chief Executive of the Meningitus Trust - commissioner of the research, with the discovery of a new study, there are hopes that these unseen, but disturbing after-effects of meningitis would be fired out soon. Children would be surely given the support and help they need to prevent meningitis and it's after effects.
