~Depression Drives Diseases~ People who have greater genetic risk for Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) are also at greater risk for at least 22 other conditions, including Anxiety and Sleep Disorders as well as Asthma, Coronary Heart Disease and Gastrointestinal Disorders, according to a study in Molecular Psychiatry. Researchers analyzed data in the UK Biobank repository from 337,536 middle-aged and older participants from the United Kingdom. Their analysis of genetic and health data indicates that MDD has a causal influence on the development of the other conditions. The researchers say these findings point to the importance of early detection and treatment of MDD and of the need to consider comorbid conditions when treating patients with MDD.
