The demographic characteristics of the study population are shown in Table 1. Reclassification of observations was effected by cross-validation leaving-one-out method [ 35 ]; this method is known to provide unbiased re-classification results.

No significant difference regarding HRQoL was observed between the three duration groups and this result was consistent in both disease groups. Functional status and patient worries and concerns. This study also examined the relative ability of the four IBDQ dimensional scores in distinguishing patients with minor or severe symptoms. Therefore, the total IBDQ score ranges between 32 andwith higher scores representing better quality of life.

Pre-publication history The pre-publication history for this paper can be accessed here: This might be reflecting a type 2 statistical error, although similar results are presented in studies with large study populations, regarding assessment of HRQoL in both UC [36,37] and CD [38]. The impact of epidemiological and disease-specific characteristics on IBDQ was studied. This demonstrates that patients with IBD suffer from significant psychological distress due to their chronic disease.

However, we do not dispose of validated criteria to determine the questionnaire’s scoring threshold that has to be reached in order to be able to assert that the patients’ quality of life has normalized.
