The Expert Guide to Clostridium Difficile

NEW: Revised in 2017 with the most up-to-date C. diff info from medical research and hospital treatments! Have you been diagnosed with C. diff, or do you have a family member suffering from symptoms of a C. diff infection? Do you want to know what causes C. diff, how to limit its spread, and learn about modern C. diff treatments from a real doctor who specializes in Clostridium difficile?

Doctor & Harvard Expert Explains C. Diff

Unlike books about C. diff that are written by non-experts who have no experience treating patients, C. Diff In 30 Minutes: A Guide To Clostridium Difficile For Patients And Families, is written by author, doctor, and Harvard Medical School Professor J. Thomas Lamont, M.D. Dr. Lamont uses plain-English explanations and case studies to describe this unpleasant bacterial infection and how it can be successfully treated. One of the world's top experts on C. diff, Dr. Lamont has conducted ground-breaking research on the bacterium and has helped thousands of patients struggling with an initial outbreak of C. diff or recurrent C. diff.

What Is C. Diff?

Clostridium difficile, or C. diff, is one of the most common hospital-acquired infections in the United States. Patients who visit a hospital for a simple outpatient treatment can catch it. C. diff is also a problem in some nursing homes, where elderly residents can suffer after being infected. The C diff superbug is a bacteria like E coli, and it is on the rise nationwide. In a recent study at a major Boston teaching hospital, nearly 1/3 of inpatients who were given antibiotics were infected with C. diff. More than half of these patients suffered from diarrhea and other symptoms.

Contents Of The C. Diff Book

  • The origins of C. diff
  • Cdiff symptoms
  • Four C. diff cases, from infection to cure
  • Antibiotics that can lead to C. diff infections
  • C diff Treatment options, including antibiotics to treat C. diff such as metronidazole (Flagyl) and Vancomycin as well as cutting-edge C. diff treatments such as stool transfers (also known as fecal transplants)
  • The use of probiotics to treat C. diff infections
  • How to limit the spread of C. diff
  • Recurring C. diff: What causes it, and special treatments
  • A glossary of medical terms
  • Online resources
This C. diff book also references Clostridium difficile's association with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and colitis, as well as the role of probiotics such as Culturelle in treating C. diff. C. Diff In 30 Minutes is not a DIY guide -- a doctor is needed to diagnose and treat C. diff. However, this Clostridium difficile book can help you understand what your doctor, gastroenterologist, or infectious disease specialist is recommending and why. If you or a loved one has C. diff, C. Diff In 30 Minutes can be an invaluable and expert resource to understand and deal with the infection.
