Not that I know off. I thought it better to use what is available in dotnet and for c# that seems to be it.

A little discussion on that here including an alternative using vb namespaces http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/UploadFile/DipalChoksi/DateDiff_CS_DC09132006172429PM/DateDiff_CS_DC.aspx
dim date1 as datetime = ...
dim date2 as datetime = ...

dim datediff = date2.subtract(date1)

This gives you a TimeSpan object with all the information.  What makes you think this is not efficient?
