Posted by Breitbart News on October 27, 2018 12:04:50 A new report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found that nearly half of the U-25 and U-29 population in the U, D.C., and the Carolinas have Crohn disease.
The report, from the Centers for Epidemiology and Prevention, found that the incidence of Crohn-related disorders and the associated health outcomes among the U.-25 and D.D.C. population have doubled from 2013 to 2018, the latest data available.
The CDC reports that between 2.5 and 5.5 million people in the United States have Crohn disease, and the CDC reports 1.5 to 3.5 billion people worldwide have the disease.
It says the increase in Crohn diseases among the young and older population is related to a growing number of people who are living longer and living in rural areas where there are fewer hospitals and medical facilities to treat Crohn patients.
“The number of Crohnians in the population increased from 1.2 million in 2013 to 2.2 Million in 2018,” said Dr. Robert D. Spitzer, the chief medical officer of the CDC.
“The incidence of the disease is also rising rapidly.
People are choosing to live longer and live in areas with fewer health care facilities.
Crohn diagnosis rates have also increased among the youth.”
Crohn disease is a serious and debilitating inflammatory disease of the intestines that affects the digestive system, the liver, the heart, the lungs, and can cause breathing difficulties, kidney failure, and blindness.
Crohn’s can affect people of all ages and the disease can be treated with antibiotics, but people with the disease usually do not respond to them.
The symptoms of Crohs are severe and usually go away after two to four weeks.
The U. S. Centers of Disease Control (CDC) states that in the past, the number of Americans diagnosed with Crohn or Crohn related disorders was approximately 5.2 per 100,000 population.
The CDC reports there were approximately 8 million people with Crohnes at the time of the survey.
The number one cause of death for Crohn is heart disease.
The report notes that nearly one-third of the Americans living with Crohs die from heart disease and that nearly 70% of the Crohn deaths were caused by heart disease-related complications.
“Crohn is the leading cause of disability in the world, and this report underscores the importance of ensuring that people with this disease are not left out in the cold,” said Anthony Fauci, chairman and chief executive officer of AARP, the nation’s largest social service organization.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) also released a report on Thursday that found that about half of adults with Crohrns disease and one-quarter of adults in the D. and D-DC metro areas had a Crohan condition.
The numbers show that more than one-fifth of all adults with a Croht condition had symptoms of the condition.
The new report is the first since the report released by the CDC on Wednesday, October 25, that found an alarming number of individuals with Crohens disease were suffering from chronic illness and that they were often unable to pay medical bills.
