Recently I saw a video on YouTube where Mr. Edward J. sharing his Crohn’s disease or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) helped with a type botanical beverage drink mix from Japan.
Before this, I have no idea what Crohn’s disease is all about. I had to go on the internet to do my research.
According to the Mayo Clinic:
Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It causes inflammation of your digestive tract, which can lead to abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss and malnutrition.
What I do know is the subject of chronic inflammation. Time Magazine called it The Silent Killer and it was on the magazine cover for their February 2004 issue.
The subject of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) was new to me and I decided to do some reading about it. What I found was a research paper on IBD published on University of Malaya website.
The title of the paper is The Current Status and Prospects of IBD in Asia.
The paper concluded that the prevalence rates of IBD in Malaysia are low. However, many challenges remain in terms of diagnosis and management of IBD in Malaysia.
The research paper highlighted that the prevalence rates of IBD are highest among the Indian ethnic group as compared to the Malay and the Chinese.
The data shows that the prevalence rates of IBD are 9.24, 6.67 and 2.17 per 100,000 persons among Indian, Malay and Chinese respectively.
Do you know of anyone that may have the symptoms of IBD?
If you do, please get them to see a doctor immediately because it is a silent killer.
