Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), does reduce life expectancy by a small number of years. This effect is far smaller for older patients. The 3.5 year difference between cases and controls is less than half as large as that between professionals and unskilled manual workers in Great Britain. Researchers selected subjects with IBD and up to five matched controls for each. They derived the date of deaths and calculated the absolute risk of death within five year age bands and derived life tables to enable the calculation of life expectancy for all IBD, and for Crohn's disease.
