Bacterial infection with C. difficile inflames the colon and causes diarrhea – that can be debilitating – and other intestinal symptoms. Infection with Clostridium difficile is very serious, can often recur, and can even lead to death.
The Gastrointestinal Society, a registered Canadian charity, provides trusted, evidence-based information on all areas of the gastrointestinal tract, and is committed to improving the lives of people with GI and liver conditions, supporting research, advocating for appropriate patient access to health care, and promoting gastrointestinal and liver health.
