Use of antibiotics over the age of 40

SAFAKNA TURKEY – Researchers followed more than 6 million people in Denmark for over 10 years and found that antibiotic use was associated with an increased risk of inflammatory bowel disease.

The study found that the effects are cumulative, with the effect seen across all age groups, especially those over 40 years of age.

If you are between 40 and 60 years old and have taken antibiotics within the past 5 years, your risk of developing inflammatory bowel disease is 48% higher.

Nine out of 10 people in the study received antibiotics. The researchers recorded 36,000 cases of colitis and about 17,000 new cases of Crohn’s disease.

The authors of the study used the following statements:

“In our study, we found that antibiotic use is associated with a higher risk of developing inflammatory bowel disease among older people compared to younger people.

We also observed an increased risk of developing inflammatory bowel disease 4-5 years after exposure to antibiotics.

This may be the result of ongoing changes in the microbial environment as a result of antibiotic use, which ultimately contributes to the development of inflammatory bowel disease.”
