Abstract
Background: The incidence of juvenile fibromyalgia (JFM) in Taiwan has yet to be documented. As such, we investigated the incidence, risk factors, and comorbidities of JFM in this country.Methods: We analyzed the 2000–2010 claims data of outpatients diagnosed with JFM (ICD-9-CM codes 729.1) from the National Health Insurance Research Database.Results: A total of 9,808 females (52.38%) and 8,916 males (47.62%) were included in this study. The male-to-female ratio was 0.99–0.95 among 16- to 18-year-old individuals. The JFM with the highest incidence was observed in the 15- to 18-year-old age group. The annual incidences of JFM peaked in 2004 (235.10 per 1,000 people/year). Comorbidities with all JFM included Signs, symptoms, and ill-defined conditions(65.29%) and Gastrointestinal conditions (17.86%). The incidence of JFM among the female patients with Signs, symptoms,and ill-defined conditions and Gastrointestinal conditions were significantly higher than that among the patients without JFM (OR = 1.09, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.03–1.16, p < 0.003; OR = 1.10, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.01–1.20, p <0.026). The incidence of JFM among the male patients with Signs, symptoms, and ill-defined conditions was significantly higher than that among the patients without JFM (OR =1.09, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.03 –1.16, p < 0.0062). Conclusions: Differences in comorbidities with JFM were observed. Additional multidisciplinary intervention strategies should be developed to detect and treat JFM.
