In two recent systematic reviews of psychological distress in individuals with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and Type I diabetes, elevated rates of depressive and anxious symptoms were reported by a large percentage of the population. For those with IBD, approximately 22% had elevated symptoms of depression and 35% reported elevated symptoms of anxiety [1]. These rates are similar to those reported by individuals with Type I diabetes, with 30% screening elevated on depression and 32% scr...

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...

Authors: Bresnahan JJ, Winthrop ZA, Salman R, Majeed S Abstract Alagille syndrome is a rare multisystem disorder affecting the liver, heart, vertebrae, eyes, and face. Alagille syndrome shares multiple phenotypic variants of other congenital or chronic childhood illnesses such as DiGeorge syndrome, Down syndrome, spina bifida, type 1 diabetes mellitus, and cystic fibrosis. All of these chronic illnesses have well-established links to psychiatric conditions. There are few community resources for Alagille patients, as it is an extremely rare condition. Despite the overlap with other chronic childhood illnesses, the p...
