a Linear regression analysis was performed to predict HRQoL, measured with quality-adjusted life year (QALY) scores, including those who responded to all five dimensions of EQ-5D pre-treatment and today (n = 624).

b Males = 0 and females = 1.

c Delay to diagnosis from first symptoms indicative of CD > 2 years.

d Comparing with those diagnosed before 1980.
