CHEO Discovery Minute
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a group of chronic gastrointestinal disorders in which people have ulceration, inflammation, and bleeding of their gastrointestinal tract, and are at risk for complications in other parts of the body. People with IBD have an elevated risk of mental illness, especially anxiety and depression, potentially related to the inflammation in the gut affecting their brain. In this Discovery Minute, Dr. Eric Benchimol shares the results of a study where he and fellow researchers asked if women with IBD were at greater risk of developing a new mental illness during pregnancy and after giving birth compared to the overall population.
