AbstractOsteopenia and osteoporosis are common features in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), comprising both Crohn ’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Moreover, Crohn’s disease is associated with increased fracture risk. The etiology of bone loss in IBD is multifactorial. It includes insufficient intake or absorption of calcium, vitamin D, and potassium; smoking; a low peak bone mass; a low body mass index; a nd decreased physical activity. In several studies, it has been shown that elevated concentrations of systemic and local pro-inflammatory cytokines, including tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), inte...

AbstractOsteoporosis is a systemic skeletal disease characterized by low bone mass and microarchitecture deterioration of bone tissue, with a consequent increase in bone fragility and susceptibility to fracture. Several gastrointestinal disorders have been associated with osteoporosis including inflammatory bowel disease and celiac disease. Different factors can explain low bone density and fractures in these patients.

Conclusion: Several health maintenance aspects are inadequately addressed by GIs and PCPs, in part because of conflicting perceptions of responsibility. Clear guidelines and better GI/PCP communication are required to ensure effective health maintenance for patients with IBD. PMID: 31528131 [PubMed]

Authors: Baltazar D, Haag C, Gupta AS, Marzano AM, Ortega Loayza AG Abstract Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a rare, ulcerative inflammatory skin disease that most commonly occurs in patients with inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatologic diseases, or hematologic diseases. Successful treatment of PG often requires immunosuppression and appropriate wound care. Systemic corticosteroids and cyclosporine are the first-line treatments for PG. However, chronic use of these systemic agents places patients at risk for developing significant side effects, including hyperglycemia, osteoporosis, hypertension, and weight gain. Fu...

Background: Studies assessing the risk of fractures in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) have shown controversial results. Goals: We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the risk of fractures in IBD. Study: Electronic databases were searched for cohort studies assessing the risk of fractures in IBD. The outcomes were the risk of overall fractures and at specific sites, and the association between the risk of fractures and the proportion of patients with corticosteroid use or osteoporosis. Results: Ten studies including 470,541 patients were identified. The risk of overall fractures in IBD pa...

Conclusions: Study results suggest multiple mechanisms contributing to pain experiences in IBD, to include central mechanisms. Features related to demographics, extraintestinal manifestations, IBD subtype, and clinical IBD features were not predictors of subgroup membership. However, total comorbidity demonstrated association with pain subgroups in this population.

We pay special attention to restoration of magnesium in the Wheat Belly lifestyle. This is because magnesium deficiency is universal, affecting virtually everyone, is severe, and has substantial implications for health. But why? Why has everyone become so depleted in magnesium in the modern world? There are five major reasons: Water filtration—We filter our water out of necessity, since modern waterways are contaminated by sewage runoff, pesticide/herbicides, algal overgrowth, etc. So, rather than drinking from a nearby stream or river that runs freely over rocks and minerals rich in magnesium, we drink water filter...

Abstract Almost 50% of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) exhibit at least one extra-intestinal manifestation in their lifetime. Extra-intestinal manifestations of IBD are often associated with the intestinal disease activity, reducing the quality of life of the patient but rarely leading to fatal complications. Musculoskeletal involvement is the most frequent extra-intestinal manifestation of patients with IBD but this rarely occurs before IBD is diagnosed. They are manifested in various forms, such as arthropathy, fibromyalgia, and osteoporosis. Therefore, a multidisciplinary team approach including ...
