C. Difficile Infection – Diagnosis and Treatment

When Should You Seek Treatment for C. Difficile?

Having diarrhea while taking antibiotics medications is not necessarily a reliable test for C. Difficile infection. However, when you notice the symptoms of multiple diarrhea you have to be certain of other indicating signs of C. Difficile to make a complete diagnosis. Hence, experts advise you to seek a doctor’s attention.

The doctor may ask for fresh samples of your stool for certain laboratory tests since mere diarrhea can be a symptom of many different diseases. Blood tests and colon examinations may be necessary to make a definitive diagnosis of the disease. [1]
