Hospitalization For Serious Infections Associated With Increased Risk For Suicide

HealthDay (8/10, Norton) reports, “In a study of over seven million people,” investigators “found that those who’d been hospitalized for infections were 42 percent more likely to die of suicide compared to people with no history of serious infection.” Notably, individuals “hospitalized for HIV/AIDS or the liver infection hepatitis showed the highest risk – more than twice that of people without those diseases, the study found.”
