Body mass index (BMI) is associated with increased future risk of inflammatory bowel disease(IBD) particularly Crohn’s disease(CD), where associations with high and low BMI have been observed. Most studies are based on adult women. We aimed to explore the impact of BMI in men entering adult life on their long-term risk of developing IBD. A total of 377,957 men born during 1939–1959, with BMI measured at draft boards at mean age 19, were followed from 1977, or time of examination, to end of 2015....

The increasing incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in western countries has led to the hypothesis that obesity-related inflammation could play a role in the etiology of IBD. However, this hypothesis lacks confirmation in studies of individuals prior to the typical onset of IBD in young adulthood. In a cohort of 316,799 individuals from the Copenhagen School Health Records Register (CSHRR), we examined whether BMI at ages 7 through 13 years was associated with later IBD. Linking the CSH...

Background Faecal calprotectin (FC) is one of the most widely used non-invasive tests for the diagnosis and assessment of Crohn’s disease (CD) activity. Despite this, factors other than disease activity which affect levels have not been extensively reviewed. This is of importance when using FC in the diagnostic setting but also may be of utility in studying the aetiology of disease.

Introduction Surgery plays an important role in the treatment of Crohn’s disease. Only a few large surgical series have been published in the literature. We describe our own experience and factors that determine risk of reoperation over a ten-year period. Methods All Crohn’s disease surgeries at St George’s Hospital from 1 st January 2004 to 31 st December 2013 were identified. A random sample of just over 200 patients was selected; not including patients less than 16 years of age at time of sur...

Introduction Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohns disease more than ulcerative colitis) is known to affect growth and final adult height when diagnosed before the end of puberty. Onset after the growth period has stopped would not be expected to have an effect on peak adult height unless there were pre-clinical changes in host physiology pre-dating the onset of disease. This question has never been addressed. Adult height progressively increased during the last century. A clue therefore to the dur...

Introduction The number of patients presenting with IBD at older ages is increasing and the proportion of patients over the age of 60 is increasing as the IBD epidemic matures. There are only a few case series in literature concerning IBD presenting at older age ages. It is unknown whether the risk factors for disease differ compared to younger age groups. Methods A database was established at CUH in 2002 and currently has 1326 subjects registered. Information was obtained pertaining to the subj...

Background and Aim We previously reported an improvement in symptoms in Crohn’s disease following an IgG4-guided exclusion diet in an open-label study. We aimed to evaluate, in a double-blinded randomized sham-controlled setting, the efficacy of IgG4-guided diet in improving quality of life in patients with Crohn’s disease.

Much has been written about the role of diet and risk for Crohn's disease (CD). However, the evidence is contradictory. Recent evidence has pointed to fiber playing an important role along with the possibility that dietary fat and overnutrition also have a role. Diet has a clearer place in disease modification, with some diets used in the treatment of CD. The lack of clarity stems from a poor understanding of the mechanisms underlying the relationship between diet and CD. Gut permeability is lik...

Introduction The epidemiology of upper gastrointestinal (UGI) cancer is rapidly changing. Current guidelines for red flag symptoms for UGI cancer were drawn up using evidence from a past age. With the exception of dysphagia, many of the symptoms are non-specific for UGI cancer in particular dyspepsia, particularly with the rapidly declining prevalence of H. pylori and its associated gastric cancers. Aims To determine the value of individual UGI cancer red flag symptoms alone or in combination in...
