I think one of the reasons we don't hear about
this is because this might be a new study. Until recent times, I think not much was known about
our DD. There have been so many breakthroughs in the last 20 years though. Go back to say the 1960's this diesease could have killed you. The doctors didn't know so much about
the disease, would rip out your intestines and didn't know how to treat it. There wasn't many meds to take.
Now, in 2011 we can do so much more and have so many new meds to take (yummy). But I think one of the biggest mysteries to the disease is we still don't know everything it can do to our bodies. How many times to we get a symptom and ask...can this be Crohn's related. I am asking that now about my skin problems.
With all that said, I think (and this is just my opinion), that the results are just coming out and they are now finding out about the heart problems. If we think about what we do know and all the other problems we can get from CD (cancer, glaucoma, osteoperosis (sp?), etc) why not add heart disease to the list.
