The Edinburgh University study found that between 2003 and 2008, 436 under-16s in Scotland were diagnosed with the condition, up from 260 cases when it was last monitored between 1990 and 1995.

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is the umbrella term for a group of incurable, chronic bowel disorders including Crohn's Disease and ulcerative colitis the condition which forced Scotland captain Darren Fletcher to take indefinite sick leave from professional football last year. It also includes inflammatory bowel disease unclassified (IBDU), a colon disorder which emerges in childhood but lacks the distinguishing features for doctors to diagnose it as either Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis.
