Depression linked to death risk from heart causes in some women
Depression linked to death risk from heart causes in some women (June 20, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Georgia - According to research published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, depression may raise risk of heart disease death in certain women. Researchers studied over 3,200 people suffering from known or suspected heart disease. Follow-up lasted nearly three years. Results showed that that for women 55 years and younger, every 1 point increase in depression symptoms raised risk of heart disease by 7%, while in men and older women, depression was not linked to heart disease. Women under 55 who had moderate or severe depression were 2.17x more likely to die from cardiovascular causes and 2.45x more likely to die from any cause.
