If white blood count is around normal but u have c diff what does that mean? Wouldn't it be higher to fight off infection

Confined to the gut. Despite popular wisdom, the white blood cells that fight bacteria often are not increased in the blood unless the infection is severe and involves much of the body, or they are actually multiplying in the bloodstream. I understand you are recovering from a c. Difficile diarrhea and you can rest assured many of your friendly white cells are in your gut helping fight these nasty bacteria.
