Addressing the Ongoing Risks of C. Diff in Healthcare Settings

Published In: MDDI Online

December 7, 2021

In general, it doesn’t raise serious concerns for healthy individuals. However, some individuals who are taking antibiotics, particularly for long periods of time, experience disturbances in their normal balanced gut flora (microbiota) due to the antibiotics’ inadvertent killing of protective bacteria. This disruption can affect important immunoregulatory and metabolic functions, turning a relatively unnoticed organism into a harmful pathogen, raising serious healthcare concerns.
