Clostridium difficile Toxin Detention (C.Diff Toxin A & B)


Severe diarrhea, abdominal pain, fever, loss of appetite, and nausea
are common symptoms associated with the toxins A and B produced by Clostridium
difficile (C. difficile). This bacterium causes colitis, and in more severe
cases, it can lead to dehydration and life-threatening complications. The
infection is often linked to antibiotic use, disrupting the normal gut flora.
Diagnosing C. difficile infection involves stool tests specifically for toxins
A and B. To prevent the spread of C. difficile, maintaining proper hygiene,
especially handwashing, is crucial. Timely medical intervention is essential
for symptom management and complication prevention.
