Abstract: Background: Our research group has previously shown that low bone mineral density (BMD) is common in children and adolescents with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). However, there is limited knowledge on the development of BMD and body composition traits (skeletal muscle and body fat) in early adulthood in this patient group. Objective: The main objective of this thesis was to gain additional understanding of BMD and body composition in young adults with childhood-onset IBD. Method: We perform... more
