Here are just a couple of references for your enlightenment..

Natural Health News — People who are prescribed a large number of antibiotics tend to have a higher risk of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), according to a new study.

The findings, published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology, and based on a sample of more than 24,000 people, add to evidence that antibiotic use can disturb the normal ‘friendly’ bacteria balance in the gut.

Previous studies have linked antibiotic use the spectrum of IBD disorders, which include Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. In the current study, Canadian researchers found 12 percent of people diagnosed with the two conditions had been prescribed three or more antibiotics two years before compared to seven percent without the disease. This difference was consistent over a five-year period.

Association Between the Use of Antibiotics and New Diagnoses of Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis
Souradet Y Shaw, James F Blanchard and Charles N Bernstein

RESULTS:

The mean age at diagnosis was 43.4 years. In all, 12% of cases had ≥3 prescriptions 2 years before the case date, compared with 7% of controls. The odds ratio for those receiving ≥3 dispensations 2 years before their study inclusion was 1.5 (95% confidence interval: 1.3,1.8; P<0.0001) of being an IBD case. This difference in ≥3 dispensations between cases and controls was fairly consistent at 3, 4, and 5 years before IBD case date. Antibiotic dispensations were associated with both Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), with the association nominally stronger in CD cases for ≥1 and ≥2 dispensations, while the association was stronger in UC cases for ≥3 dispensations. A dose-dependent relationship between the number of antibiotic dispensations, and the risk of IBD was observed across all years investigated.

CONCLUSIONS:

Subjects diagnosed with IBD were more likely to have been prescribed antibiotics 2–5 years before their diagnosis. This possibly implicates antibiotic use as a predisposing factor in IBD etiology.
