Some of our volunteers or their family members have recently been diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease (IBS). IBS is separated into ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. This article speaks to the seemingly increase in patients with Crohn' Disease.
Do more people have Crohn's disease? The researchers explore that this hypothesis. They believe that the reasons we are witnessing an increased number of patients with Crohn's might imply that physicians are diagnosing Crohn's earlier or maybe we are expanding the addition of Crohn's as a medical disorder, other than the primary diagnosis when billing.
