Keep testing for c-diff

I have been tested several times in the last few months for c-diff and every time it comes up negative. I called the doctor's office because I was going to the bathroom twice as much as normal. They want me tested again for c-diff.

You're diagnosed with Crohn's, correct? What is your current treatment regimen?

I have no problem with the occasional c.diff test, but if that comes back negative and you're having Crohn's symptoms, your current treatment regimen needs to be adjusted.

I'm sorry you're having to go through this
