The overuse of antibiotics has in many cases caused a epidemic of C.Diff.
My mother who is 92 had it twice and it can be very serious and very expensive.

I had to tell them to test for it because her previous physician said it was probably just IBS and told her to take Imodium. After a sinus infection.
The second time she got it, was after a hip fracture surgery when they gave her an antibiotic.

They treated her with an one antibiotic to get rid of it and than another after the first one didn't work, that only relieved it for about a week and it came back with a vengeance.
I than started doing some serious research and found the one that had been successful in eradicating C. Diff and told her physician. They had never heard about it.
Surprise, surprise. Anyway, that was successful. So far so good, and its been about 6 months. Only trouble is that it cost $ 1100.00 for ten pills and that is with insurance.
