Depression rates among Crohn’s disease patients appear to be higher than the general population. The article, “Association Between Affective-Cognitive Symptoms of Depression and Exacerbation of Crohn’s Disease,” explores if depression influences disease activity in Crohn’s disease patients. Using a shortened and a simplified Crohn’s Disease Activity Index researchers were able to assess if patients with depression demonstrated an increase in disease activity scores. To learn more about this research and other helpful related information, please contact the IBD Help Center at firstname.lastname@example.org and specify the article.
