New Meds Make Inroads Against Crohn’s Disease
Fewer Americans with Crohn’s disease are ending up in the hospital than in the past, according to a new federal study.
Crohn’s is a chronic inflammatory bowel disorder that often leads to surgery for most with the disease.
Hospitalization rates for Crohn’s disease remained stable in the United States between 2003 and 2013. That’s a change from a study done from 1998 to 2004 that saw more than 4 percent increases in Crohn’s hospitalizations each year, researchers with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.
