Summary Background Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a lifelong condition with no cure. Patients with IBD might experience symptoms of common mental disorders such as anxiety and depression because of bidirectional communication via the gut–brain axis and chronicity of symptoms, and because of impaired quality of life and reduced social functioning. However, uncertainties remain about the magnitude of this problem. We aimed to assess prevalence of symptoms of anxiety or depression in adult pat...

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) remains one of the most common gastrointestinal disorders seen by clinicians in both primary and secondary care. Since publication of the last British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) guideline in 2007, substantial advances have been made in understanding its complex pathophysiology, resulting in its re-classification as a disorder of gut-brain interaction, rather than a functional gastrointestinal disorder. Moreover, there has been a considerable amount of new ev...

ABSTRACT Objectives Disorders of gut-brain interaction, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and functional dyspepsia (FD) frequently overlap, but the impact of this on the natural history is unknown. We examined this issue in a longitudinal follow-up study conducted in a large cohort of individuals. Methods We collected complete demographic, symptom, mood, and psychological health data from 1374 adults who self-identified as having IBS. We applied the Rome IV criteria to examine what proporti...

INTRODUCTION Psychological comorbidities are associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), but little is known about their cumulative effect on its prognosis. We examined this issue in a longitudinal 12-month follow-up study. METHODS We collected complete demographic, symptom, and psychological comorbidity data (anxiety, depression, somatic symptom disorder, perceived stress, and gastrointestinal symptom-specific anxiety) at baseline from 807 adults who met Rome IV criteria for IBS. At 12 mont...

BACKGROUND Conventionally, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is subgrouped using predominant stool form, yet it is a complex disorder, with multiple biopsychosocial contributors. We previously derived and validated a latent class model subgrouping people with IBS into seven clusters based on gastrointestinal and extraintestinal symptoms and psychological profile. AIMS To conduct longitudinal follow-up examining the natural history and prognostic value of these clusters. METHODS Participants complet...
