Only test if symptoms suggest c.diff, only test loose stool. Use 2 seperate types of test to reduce false positives, don't rely on PCR.

Thanks so much for finding this and posting. I printed it out and plan to have it put in my medical chart. It CLEARLY states Flagyl is now a 2nd line treatment and Dificid is moving up to first line.
This will save countless people so much suffering !!!
