COVID-19 and Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI) not only share some of the same at-risk populations – the elderly, hospitalized patients and those with weakened immune systems – but have similar GI manifestations as well.

Because symptoms of CDI can complicate a diagnosis of COVID-19, renewed interest must be given to CDI during this pandemic.

Explore our on-demand program, A Gut Check: Altering the GI Microbiome to Fight the C. diff Invasion, to learn how to identify and treat mild to moderate CDI based on a variety of risk factors and evidence-based approaches.
