Conclusions: In our cohort, the prevalence of IBD-FAPD was 26%. This is the first study to assess all FAPDs using the Rome III criteria and to demonstrate increased anxiety, depression, and worse quality of life in children with IBD-FAPD. The identification of patients predisposed to IBD-FAPD may allow implementing strategies that could improve symptoms and quality of life.

Discussion Fatigue is a subjective feeling of decreased energy, tiredness or feeling of exhaustion. Lethargy is often used synonymously, but lethargy is a state of being drowsiness or sleepy, and implies mental status changes. Both can cause the person to be apathetic or less active. Fatigue is a common state that almost everyone experiences multiple times in his or her lifetime. For most people it is a relatively acute or short-term chronic problem, often with a relatively easily identifiable problem cause, such as inadequate sleep, acute illness, or overexertion. For some, it can be less readily identifiable such as dep...

Background: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a heterogeneous chronic inflammatory condition requiring significant healthcare expenditure. Subgroups of individuals contribute disproportionately to spending. We aimed to determine demographic and clinical factors predictive of high healthcare expenditures for IBD patients followed over a multiyear period. Methods: This was a registry analysis using a prospective observational, consented, natural history registry from a tertiary IBD center and associated medical charges, not including pharmacy expenses. The 100 patients with the highest medical charges (top 5%) were compar...

Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs), which include Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, are inflammatory diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Quality of life for IBD patients is negatively affected by associated pain and gastrointestinal dysfunction, but also by serious behavioral symptoms that include depression, anxiety, fatigue, and cognitive dysfunction. Because these behavioral comorbidities are poorly understood, we have investigated them in a rat model of IBD caused by infusion of a hapten (trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS)) into the lower colon. TNBS colitis has many similarities to Crohn's disease, and we ...
