Ulcerative Colitis: Patients' Perception Compared with Other Chronic Diseases

A second presentation of the surveys' findings analyzed UC patients' responses to quality of life questions as compared to the responses of patients with three other chronic diseases (rheumatoid arthritis [RA], asthma, and migraine) and found that UC takes a relatively high psychological toll. Patients were recruited through an actively managed panel of approximately 900,000 US adults that includes people from all US demographic and geographic groups.

More UC patients indicate that they think their disease is controlling their lives (53 percent; n=451) than RA patients (44 percent; n=309), asthma patients (19 percent; n=305) or migraine patients (37 percent; n=305) (p<0.05). UC patients also report feelings of stress (82 percent), depression (62 percent), and embarrassment (70 percent) at higher rates than patients with any of the other chronic conditions surveyed (p<0.05).

The majority (62 percent) of patients with UC feel that the disease makes it difficult to lead a normal life, which is significantly higher than the proportion of patients with asthma (33 percent) or migraine (59 percent) who feel this way (p<0.05).

"We conclude that patients with UC experience a significantly higher psychological burden, and their symptoms are frequently more disruptive to their lives, than patients with the other diseases in the survey. As such, we as physicians should initiate communication with UC patients on quality of life issues in order to better understand the effects this disease is having on them and aggressively treat the disease and its concomitant psychological effects to lessen the burden," said Dr. Rubin.
