C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?
@annapocono If you don't mind me asking, what are the 3 risk factors of cdiff?
Jump to this post
1. Being old like I think over 65 or so
2. Having been in hospital which is headquarters for the c. Diff spores.
3. Having recently taken an antibiotic particularly one of the high risk ones but all of them increase risk.
