Studies have found that depression is more frequent in patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) than the general population. Clinicians are now trying to pinpoint risk factors for psychological impairment in the IBD population.
A recent study shows that those living with #InflammatoryBowelDisease are more likely / prone to depression than that of the general public. Please excuse my sarcasm here... but... DOH! Personally, I feel like this study really under estimates the amount of people that have IBD and also have #depression . Most of those that I know in the community have experienced depression at one point from IBD or continually live with it.
