What's the C. Diff ?

From MSNBC:

"First came stomach cramps, which left Christina Shultz doubled over and weeping in pain. Then came nausea and fatigue -- so overwhelming she couldn't get out of bed for days. Just when she thought things couldn't get worse, the nastiest diarrhea of her life hit -- repeatedly forcing her into the hospital.

Doctors finally discovered that the 35-year-old Hilliard, Ohio, woman had an intestinal bug that used to be found almost exclusively among older, sicker patients in hospitals and was usually easily cured with a dose of antibiotics. But after months of treatment, Shultz is still incapacitated.

"It's been a nightmare," said Shultz, a mother of two young children. "I just want my life back."

Shultz is one of a growing number of young, otherwise healthy Americans who are being stricken by the bacterial infection known as Clostridium difficile -- or C. diff -- which appears to be spreading rapidly around the country and causing unusually severe, sometimes fatal illness.

That is raising alarm among health officials, who are concerned that many cases may be misdiagnosed and are puzzled as to what is causing the microbe to become so much more common and dangerous.

"It's a new phenomenon. It's just emerging," said L. Clifford McDonald of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. "We're very concerned. We know it's happening, but we're really not sure why it's happening or where this is going."

"There are no national statistics, but the number of infections in hospitals appears to have doubled from 2000 to 2003 and there may be as many as 500,000 cases each year, McDonald said. Other estimates put the number in the millions.

The emerging problem first gained attention when unusually large and serious outbreaks began turning up in other countries. In Canada, for example, Quebec health officials reported last year that perhaps 200 patients died in an outbreak involving at least 10 hospitals. Similar outbreaks were reported in England and the Netherlands.

After the CDC began receiving reports of severe cases among hospital patients in the United States -- and in people who had never, or just briefly, been hospitalized -- it launched an investigation.

In the Dec. 8 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, the CDC reported that an analysis of 187 C. diff samples found that the unusually dangerous strain that caused the Quebec cases was also involved in outbreaks at eight health care facilities in Georgia, Illinois, Maine, New Jersey, Oregon and Pennsylvania.

"This strain has somehow been able to get into hospitals widely distributed across the United States," said Dale N. Gerding of Loyola University in Chicago, who helped conduct the analysis. "We're not sure how."

Denise Barker on Leyland avenue in Aroura Illinois, received anitbiotics for her son Doctor. The naperville hospital Edwards prescribed cephelixin. The drug expired yet Denise Barker continued to give her son the drug. Soon her son came down with c diff disease. Edwards hospital ignored her request for investigation about the doctor. Denise became so upset that she intentionally gave the pills to her adopted children and they all were diagnosed with c-diff disease. When she was poisoning her children, she panicked and poisened herself, and hte all got c- diff disease. Denise Barker was now retaliating even more, planning c-diff attacks on the community. Denise barker than did poison a respit care worker with c-diff disease in the community. To this day she attacks the communities with her supply of c-diff disease with in these cephelexin pills.

Ultimaelty Denise Barker has poisoned many children and many adults in retaliation. When I personally new Denise Barker she explained the local police do not care and will do anything about and that she will continue the c-diff assaults on the community because he has so easy.

I contacted the police and they really did say that arresting Denise Barker is not in their best interest.

Denise Barker, arouaora Illinois, continues to attack communities with c-diff disease to this day.

The truth C-diff is a household biological weapon. A weapon successful in making people retaliate and spread the disease further. This is the real epidemic. Law enforcement does not have the intelligence to fight domestic biological weapons.
