Crohn’s Disease

12th November 2012 by Louise Hudman

This guideline is mainly relevant for secondary care and doesn’t really change our practice. There are a few useful bits for us.

General Information:

  • Stop Smoking – encourage this as has a huge impact on relapse rates
  • Fertility – ensure women are aware of the impact of medication / surgery on their fertility.
  • Osteopenia and fracture risk – ensure you assess patients for fracture risk as per the recent NICE guideline. Remember that patients may have low BMI or frequent use of steroids which also increases risk.
