Fatigue is a common phenomenon in IBD patients, which contributes significantly to the burden of the disease. The pathophysiology of IBD-related fatigue is considered multifactorial, but at present the underlying mechanisms are largely unknown. Based on the literature and the data presented in this thesis, we propose a multifactorial conceptual model in which both somatic and psychological factors are accounted for fatigue.
