PostSubject: Depression linked to Alzheimer's   Tue Apr 08, 2008 4:26 am

People who have had depression may be more prone to Alzheimer's disease, two studies suggest.
Dutch researchers found Alzheimer's was 2.5 times more likely in people with a history of depression. Similarly, US researchers, examining Catholic clergy, found those with signs of depression were more likely to go on to develop Alzheimer's.

The Dutch appears in the journal Neurology and the US study in Archives of General Psychiatry.

The Dutch study was small - 486 people over an average of six years, with just 33 people developing Alzheimer's.
But it found that people who showed signs of depression before the age of 60 were four times more likely to develop Alzheimer's.

Oh my goodness I had better straighten up Laughing Rolling Eyes
Depression.........yes I get depressed now and again but I think everyone does in this day and age.

With all the doom and gloom around the place is it any wonder, but I must take check of myself before I end up with alzheimers. Rolling Eyes Shocked
