C Diff doesn't have much to do with UC or Crohn's all C Diff is, is when all the good bacteria in your gut die and bad bacteria takes over. You tend to get it easier if you're on antibiotics a lot. I've had it twice and both times I was on a series of antibiotics. You can also get it through fecal-oral contact. It's pretty miserable. I was in bed for a good 4days straight last time I had it.. and home sick for almost an entire week.
