Epidemiology and care structures for children and adolescents and young adults up to the 26th year of life with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) in Leipzig/Saxony/Germany

ConclusionsNearly all patients up to 15  years (completeness 87.5%) were recorded by pediatricians to the IBD Registry. The actual incidence up to the age of 18 years for IBD in Leipzig is one of the highest worldwide. To obtain valid epidemiologic data up to the age of 18, the inclusion of adult gastroenterologists are necessary.

Uses of nutritional therapies for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are of tremendous interest to the lay and professional communities. This interest currently outweighs the scientific basis for deciding on a particular therapy for any given patient. Some nutritional therapies have credible reports, in peer-review journals, validating their use for some patients. The broad pediatric gastroenterology community in the United States has, however, been unable or unwilling to agree on the details necessary to disseminate the most effective therapies with adequate reliability and validity to implement these interventions successf...

Objective: Infliximab (IFX) is a frequent therapeutic option for Crohn disease (CD) patients. Early detection of responders to IFX is critical for the management of CD in order to avoid long-term exposure to the drug without benefit. This retrospective study aimed at analysing which early parameters recorded during the induction period are able to predict response to IFX during the maintenance period in pediatric CD. Patients and Methods: Medical records of all CD patients ages from 2 to 18 years who received IFX at a tertiary IBD center were retrospectively analyzed. Children were classified in 3 groups according to ...

Conclusions: The present study explores the prevalence and presentation of perfectionism in a sample of adolescents with IBD. Results suggest dimensions of perfectionism are differentially associated with psychosocial and disease management outcomes, suggesting further evidence of the relationship between perfectionism, maladaptive coping, and subsequent influences on health outcomes in the context of pediatric chronic illness.

Authors: Grosse CS, Christophersen CT, Devine A, Lawrance IC Abstract Introduction: Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) carries a significant burden on an individual's quality-of-life and on the healthcare system. The majority of patients use dietary modifications to manage their symptoms, despite limited research to support these changes. There is emerging data that a plant-based diet will be of benefit to IBD patients.Areas covered: A literature review on the pathogenesis and potential benefits of dietary management of IBD.Expert opinion: A Westernized diet has been associated with IBD risk and relapse; hence a plan...

Authors: Yue Ying C, Jun S, Yu Fan W, Hua RZ Abstract Introduction: Anemia is a common extraintestinal complication of Crohn's disease (CD) mainly caused by iron deficiency and, affects the quality of life of CD patients. In recent years, the etiology and pathology of iron-deficiency anemia (IDA) and anemia of chronic diseases have been elucidated. However, common biochemical parameters of iron status for the assessment of patients with anemia and CD are insufficient. Thus, novel iron indices are required for accurate assessment in CD patients with IDA. Oral iron supplementation as IDA treatment is common and assoc...

Hello all! This is my second post on SDN. I am a biomedical engineering pre-med who is currently in my sophomore year. I am currently in the worst semester I have ever taken in my college career. It was going well at first, but then, and I know it's really stupid, but I heard that the coronavirus was in my University, and since I have a low immune system due to Crohn's and Remicade, I began to skip a lot of classes and now I'm playing catchup. Most likely I will get a a low GPA this... Deathly worried about my future as a pre-med!
