Dayle lost her mother and grandmother within months of each other to an illness many people have never heard of: Clostridioides difficile, or C. difficile. The bacterium, which is highly contagious and can survive on surfaces for months even when cleaned, can cause symptoms ranging from stomach pain and diarrhea to life-threatening inflammation of the colon.
On Tuesday’s episode of Dr. Phil, Dayle, who also suffered a C. difficile infection and survived, joins Dr. Phil along with Pfizer’s Chief Patient Officer, Dr. Freda Lewis-Hall, to share important information about the bacterium. Find out who may be at risk, how it is spread, and what you can do to help prevent getting an infection.
