Hi! I'm brand new to this board. I was dx with a C Difficile infection in Nov 2011, and then in Dec 2011, diagnosed with Crohn's.
Four days ago, I started the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) with the intention of curing (or helping) my Crohn's. On the second day, my GI called to tell my I tested positive for the C Diff toxin again, but my stool sample was negative for the bacteria. He told me he doesn't know whether or not my stomach bleeding is due to C Diff or Crohn's. He gave me a choice of taking Vancomycin again for the third time for C Diff, or Prednisone for Crohn's, which I've never tried. The main reason I'm doing the SCD diet is because my GI never seems to give me a straight answer, and I'm very sick and willing to try anything.
I have lots of questions about all of these things, but maybe there is someone out there who has had recurring C Diff and knows a succesful way to treat it! Thanks all.
