Inflammatory Bowel Disease Likely to Cause Early Death

IBD patients often experience inflammation beyond the intestinal tract

Researchers have found that people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are likely to die early.

“The good news is life expectancy has increased in people with IBD, but there is still a gap between people with and without the disease,” said study author Eric Benchimol from The Hospital for Sick Children in Canada.

“However, people with IBD suffer from pain, which can negatively affect daily functioning and contribute to decreased health-adjusted life expectancy,” Benchimol added.

The study, published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal included 32,818 people living with IBD in 1996 (matched to 163,284 people without IBD), increasing to 83,672 in 2011 (matched to 418,360 non-IBD people).

In women with IBD, life expectancy increased by almost three years between 1996 (75.5 years) and 2011 (78.4 years).

The findings showed that Life expectancy among men with IBD increased by 3.2 years between 1996 and 2011, from 72.2 years to 75.5 years.

When measuring health-adjusted life expectancy, a measure of how health-related symptoms and functioning affects both qualities of life and life expectancy, the gap between those with and without IBD was even greater.

Women with IBD have a health-adjusted life expectancy that is 9.5 to 13.5 years shorter than women without IBD.

Men with IBD have a health-adjusted life expectancy that is 2.6 to 6.7 years shorter than men without IBD.
