TORONTO: People who suffer from depression may not live as long as persons who don’t experience this mental health disarray, a Canadian study suggests.
Researchers went through six decades of mental health and mortality data on 3,410 adults during three time periods: 1952 to 1967, 1968 to 1990 and 1991 to 2011.
It transpired that depression was related to the risk of early death in every decade of the study for men and (starting in the 1990s for) women.
The connection between shorter lifespan and depression emerge strongest in the years following a depressive episode, leading the researchers to conclude that at least part of the risk might be minimized by effectively treating the mental illness.
Depression has long been associated to different kinds of health problems. It may lead to physiological changes in the body and develop unhealthy habits like a poor diet, inactivity, smoking and excessive drinking.
Beat diabetes by shedding 10-15kgs of weight: study!
LONDON: Since dieting loses fat allowing pancreas work properly again, losing weight enormously helps contain diabetes.
The concentration of body fat around pancreas causes stress to beta cells (that controls blood sugar levels) in the organ.
When they stop producing enough of the hormone insulin, blood sugar levels augments out of control.
Glasgow University Professor Mike Lean speaking about a new study said: “We now have clear evidence that weight loss of 10-15kgs is enough to turn this disease around. One in 11 adults worldwide has diabetes, and most of them have type 2.
“Uncontrolled sugar levels cause damage throughout the body, leading to organ failure, blindness and limb amputations”.
