Inflammatory Bowel Disease

  • Inflammatory bowel disease

    Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) involves chronic inflammation of all or part of your digestive tract. IBD primarily includes ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.Severe diarrhea, pain, fatigue and weight loss. IBD can be debilitating and sometimes leads to life-threatening complications.
    Doctors use one of two approaches to treatment: "step-up," which starts with milder drugs first, versus "top-down," which gives people stronger drugs earlier in the treatment process.

  • Inflammatory bowel disease

    Requiring two or more diagnoses of IBD in nonprimary care, a total of 61 344 individuals with physician-diagnosed IBD were alive in Sweden in 2010 (mean age 50 years; 51% men), corresponding to a prevalence of 0.65% (95% CI, 0.65-0.66). The prevalence increased with age, and peaked in women at ages 50-59 years and in men at ages 60-69 years. Adding the requirement of IBD as main (vs. main or contributory) diagnosis code, or diagnosis from an internal medicine/gastroenterology/surgery department did not change the prevalence estimate. Prevalence of actively treated disease (defined as two or more IBD-related visits, of which one occurred in 2010, plus at least one dispensed prescription of IBD-related drugs in 2010) was 0.27% (95% CI, 0.27-0.28).

  • Inflammatory bowel disease

    Intestinal strictures and fistulas do not always cause symptoms. Strictures, therefore, may not require treatment unless they cause significant intestinal blockage. Likewise, fistulas may not require treatment unless they cause significant abdominal pain, infection, external drainage, or bypass of intestinal segments.
