Recent studies have suggested that a higher red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is associated with disease activity in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). However, the RDW in IBD patients without anemia has not been investigated. This study aimed to determine whether or not RDW could be used for the assessment of disease activity in IBD patients with and without anemia. The serum C-reactive protein (CRP) level, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), hemoglobin concentration… CONTINUE READING
