C-diff and Dificid

Posted by lamiller @lamiller, Apr 5 5:52am

I was put on Dificid after my second bout when Vancomycin didn’t work. It’s very expensive so it’s not used as a first line of defence. 2 pills twice a day then one pill every other day for 20 days. A low roughage diet and no dairy, a probiotic every other day and so far, so good! Infectious Disease department at my hospital suggested Kefir yogurt. Most physicians won’t recommend over the counter medicine or supplements but kefir has scientific study behind it I was told. I will gradually add more roughage. Remember…your gut is inflamed. It needs TLC right now. Hope this helps.
