Newsweek (6/23, Gander) reports that research suggests individuals “with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) may have a higher risk of developing dementia.” Investigators “also found that participants with IBD developed dementia almost a decade before those without.” The research was published in Gut. CNN (6/23, Rogers) reports that the research “found the association between IBD and dementia was the same for men and women.” While “there was no difference in risk between those with ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease…there was an increased risk for dementia as the severity and duration of IBD rose.” HealthDay (6/23, Norton) also covers the story.
