Answer

Most of the concerns regarding the interaction of other disease processes and IBD revolve around the medications used to treat various conditions; therefore, the physician treating the older patient must continually be aware of the potential for medication interactions. Although the advent of electronic medical records makes it easier to check for such interactions, it remains up to the physician to determine which interactions are clinically significant.
