    C. Difficile Gut Infection Or Even IBD May Be Due To Low Vitamin D Or PPI Drugs

    As the study says, the direct cause is high intestinal levels of calcium but as the study also says these are usually due to poor calcium absorption. And unless a person has IBD (which is rare) the low vitamin D status or PPI drug (GERD) use stand out as the most likely causes, even more so...
