Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) is a term referring to chronic and recurrent gastrointestinal disease. It includes Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). It is undeniable that presenting features may be unclear and do not enable differentiation between disease types. Therefore, additional information, obtained during the analysis, can definitely provide a potential way to differentiate between UC and CD. For that reason, finding the optimal logistic model for further analysis of collected medical data, is a main factor determining the further precisely defined decision class for each examined patient. In our study, 152 patients with CD or UC were included. The collected data concerned not only biochemical parameters of blood but also very subjective information, such as data from interviews. The built-in logistics model with very high precision was able to assign patients to the appropriate group (sensitivity = 0.84, specificity = 0.74, AUC = 0.93). This model indicates factors differentiating between CD and UC and indicated odds ratios calculated for significantly different variables in these two groups. All obtained parameters of the model were checked for statistically significant. The constructed model was able to be distinguish between ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.
