Abstract Background & Aims Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are associated with mood disorders, such as anxiety or depression, but it is not clear whether one contributes to development of the other, or if the interaction is bi-directional (anxiety or depression contributes to the progression of IBD, and IBD affects psychologic health). We performed a 2-year longitudinal prospective study of patients in secondary to care investigate the bi-directionality of IBD and mood disorders. Methods We co...

Background & Aims Symptoms compatible with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are common in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), but it is unclear whether this relates to occult IBD activity. We attempted to resolve this issue in a secondary care population by using a cross-sectional study design. Methods We analyzed Rome III IBS symptoms, disease activity indices, and psychological, somatization, and quality of life data from 378 consecutive, unselected adult patients with IBD seen in cl...

BACKGROUND: Anxiety, depression and nongastrointestinal symptoms are often prominent in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), but their relative value in patient management has not been quantitatively assessed. We modified the Patient Health Questionnaire 15 (PHQ-15) by excluding three gastrointestinal items to create the PHQ-12 Somatic Symptom (PHQ-12 SS) scale. AIMS: To compare the value of the PHQ-12 SS scale with the Hospital Anxiety and Depression (HAD) scale in predicting symptoms and patient be...

Employing a consensus approach, our working team critically considered the available evidence and multinational expert criticism, revised the Rome II diagnostic criteria for the functional bowel disorders, and updated diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Diagnosis of a functional bowel disorder (FBD) requires characteristic symptoms during the last 3 months and onset >6 months ago. Alarm symptoms suggest the possibility of structural disease, but do not necessarily negate a diagnosis of an F...

Background—The appropriate medical treatment of patients with ulcerative colitis is determined largely by the severity of symptoms. Hospital assessment of the severity of disease activity includes investigation of laboratory indices and sigmoidoscopic assessment of mucosal inflammation. Aims—To develop a simplified clinical colitis activity index to aid in the initial evaluation of exacerbations of colitis. Methods—The information for development of the simple index was initially evaluated in 63...

ABSTRACT– A self-assessment scale has been developed and found to be a reliable instrument for detecting states of depression and anxiety in the setting of an hospital medical outpatient clinic. The anxiety and depressive subscales are also valid measures of severity of the emotional disorder. It is suggested that the introduction of the scales into general hospital practice would facilitate the large task of detection and management of emotional disorder in patients under investigation and trea...
