Does anyone know if Labcorp or Quest offers blood draw testing for C diff? I know that its typically diagnosed from stool sampling but my LLMD wants a blood draw as well.

Looks like Lab Corp only uses stool testing, based on what I found:

I didn't have much luck deciphering the Quest Diagnostics website. Perhaps you will have better luck:
