Gender Ethnicracial And Life Span Considerations

CD may occur at any age in both men and women, with rates slightly higher in males; it is generally first diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 30 years. Reports indicate that the number being diagnosed at 55 years of age and older is growing; thus the age distribution is bimodal (15 to 30 and 55 to 70). Two factors that may predispose the elderly to CD include an increased vulnerability to infection and a susceptibility to inadequate blood supply to the bowel because of the aging process. CD is more common in whites than in African Americans or Asian Americans, and there is a two- to fourfold increase in the prevalence of CD in the Jewish population in the United States and Europe as compared with other groups.
