Treat the Gut (When You’ve Got the Blues!)

Depression and anxiety are common paralleling symptoms in patients with Ulcerative Colitis (UC) and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) [1].  Often, the mental symptoms precede the physical symptoms in patients with UC by about a year [1].  The reverse is generally true of IBD, with depression or anxiety following the actual physical disease [1].  Whether the mental symptoms follow or precede the physical disease, the connection is shown in both clinical and research settings.
