Chronic diseases are more likely to develop in these groups of people with anxiety and depression
Women of all ages and younger men with certain mood disorders are more likely to develop certain chronic illnesses, according to new research.
Researchers of a retrospective study published in the journal JAMA Network Open analyzed health data of 40,360 adults from Olmsted County in Minnesota, from the Rochester Epidemiology Project medical records-linkage system. This database collects ongoing medical information from people living in Olmsted County.
The research team split the adults into three age groups by sex: 20, 40 and 60 years old. Each participant was sorted based on whether they celebrated those milestone birthdays between 2005 and 2014. The study also included a follow-up on December 31, 2017.
