Has anyone here dealt with C diff colitis?

Question

Has anyone here dealt with C diff colitis? I had it a few years back and now have it again. Don’t really want to get a colonoscopy again. Any advice is appreciated!

  1. antibiotic and colostrum?

  2. Antibiotic

  3. I was on amoxicillin for strep.

  4. that doesn't work for c.diff

  5. No I know that's the antibiotic that caused c diff. I was wanting to avoid another antibiotic 🙁

  6. Agree, with probiotics. Mds usually prescribe Flagyl or oral vanco if Flagyl doesn't help.

  7. I have no first hand knowledge, but this probiotic is supposed to be phenomenal for c diff. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0056GCLVO/ref=sr_ph_1_a_it?qid=1459103776&sr=sr-1&keywords=saccharomyces+boulardii

    I'd focus on getting the Iron out:

    A votre sante!

  9. I was hospitalized with C Diff in June. Terrible, painful stuff. Florastor is amazing for a probiotic.

  10. What did your doctor say? My friend had it & doc said she had to take antibiotics– Then i've read about eating poop for it also.

  11. There is FMT. Fecal Microbiota Transplant

  12. My mother had C Diff for months and months. I got her a bottle of the probiotic called Sacchromyces Boulardi and it helped her instantaneously.

  13. Yes they wanted me to do a FMT last time but I was only 17. Are all prebiotic safe while breastfeeding? I'm also on zoloft for PPD

  14. Just bought jigsaw mag and that probiotic!

  15. I can send you some kefir grains.

  16. Hi Kasaundra. I had C Diff since June of last year. I lost 25 lbs and was in much pain and little appetite. I felt as if I was slowly dying. After doing most of the above remedies mentioned, 4 rounds of unsuccessful treatment with antibiotics and semi successful treatment with at home fecal transplants, I finally contacted Dr David Shepherd from RDS Infusions in Tampa FL last month. Drove 2 days to get to Tampa and he performed FMT colonoscopy. The next day I was given 20 FMT pills. The C Diff is gone now, going on 6 weeks. You can find doctors who do fmt in Oregon as well. If I were given a choice, it would be FMT. 90% cure rate of C Diff. http://thepowerofpoop.com/interview-with-fecal-transplant-naturopathic-doctor/

  17. My husband is actually stationed in VA right now so if the probiotic don't work we can definitely make that trip. Thank you so much!

  18. SACCHAROMYCES BOULARDII – It's a nearly unique yeast/fungal probiotic. It took me 6 weeks, but I beat C Diff, without an additional antibiotic. I have continued to take an occasional prophylactic dose in the years since.

  19. My elderly mom had c diff for many months. The ONLY thing that worked was saccharomyces boulardi! I swear by it!
