Abstract

The association of fatigue with decreased physical performance and underlying mechanisms are poorly understood in Crohn s disease (CD). We aimed to measure and compare self-reported fatigue with skeletal muscle fatigue in CD subjects and healthy controls, and to identify associated factors that may be amenable to change.
