Hey everyone, I just read about this link between depression and diabetes. According to a study in the Archives of Internal Medicine, people who suffer from depression are at a greater risk of type 2 diabetes. It was done on 4681 people, aged 65 and older, who did not have diabetes when the study began. The ten-year study also found that people who reported having more symptoms of depression were significantly more likely to develop diabetes.
Antidepressants Linked to Sudden Death in Women
Research just published in the March 2009, issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology links depression to sudden cardiac death (SCD) and fatal coronary heart disease (CHD) in women with no known heart problems. But if you read the research carefully, it reveals another startling link: The study found the women with the highest risk for SCD and fatal CHD had the most depressive symptoms or were taking antidepressants.
