According to the CDC
Clostridioides difficile (also known as C. diff) is a bacterium that causes diarrhea and colitis (an inflammation of the colon).
It’s estimated to cause almost half a million illnesses in the United States each year.
About 1 in 6 patients who get C. diff will get it again in the subsequent 2-8 weeks.
Within a month of diagnosis, 1 in 11 people over age 65 died of a healthcare-associated C. diff infection.
