5 Risk Factors for the Development of IBD


1. Family history


People with a family history of Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), especially with a first-degree relative being affected by IBD, are at 5 to 20 times the risk of developing it themselves compared to other people. A child has a 5% risk from parents and around a 70% chance from an identical twin. Non-identical twins have a comparatively lesser risk, of 5-10%.
