5 Common Warning Signs of C. Difficile Infection

If you’re experiencing abdominal pain, fever, diarrhea, nausea or loss of appetite, you may be showing signs of a C. difficile infection (CDI). Let’s break down each symptom so you can understand why they might signal a CDI.

  • Abdominal pain: Is your stomach hurting more than usual? You might feel cramping or tenderness in your gut area.
  • Fever: Do you have a temperature higher than 101 degrees Fahrenheit? A fever is one way your body tries to fight off an infection.
  • Diarrhea: Are you making frequent trips to the bathroom? Diarrhea caused by CDI can be watery and may have a strong odor.
  • Nausea: Do you feel like throwing up? Nausea can be caused by CDI as your body tries to rid itself of toxins.
  • Loss of appetite: Are you not feeling hungry even though you haven’t eaten much? This could be due to CDI affecting the normal function of your digestive system.

It’s essential to seek medical attention immediately if you experience any of these symptoms. The earlier CDI is diagnosed, the better the chances are for successful treatment. Don’t wait for the symptoms to get worse—take action now!
