Management of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases in Special Populations: Obese, Old or Obstetric
The epidemiology of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is progressively evolving impacting the type of patients with IBD we will see in clinical practice. In this review, we discuss specific challenges and solutions in the management of (a) obese, (b) older and (c) obstetric (pregnant) patients with IBD. With the global obesity epidemic, almost one in three patients with IBD are obese. Obesity is associated with greater difficulty in achieving remission, higher risk of disease relapse and higher burden and costs of hospitalization in patients with IBD.

Therefore, hip OA affects a very significant number of patients and, together with knee OA, is associated with increased cardiovascular mortality. Primary prevention involves the identification and management of its modifiable risk factors. Those that we know of today include anatomical abnormalities, joint trauma, certain occupations and, to a lesser extent, obesity. Screening for hip dysplasia as early as possible,...
