Women In Midlife With History Of Depression Have Greater Heart Disease Risk

HealthDay (10/6, Salamon) reports, “Women in midlife with a history of depression appear at markedly greater risk of suffering from heart disease,” investigators found. After tracking some “1,100 women over 10 years, researchers found that depression was the only significant risk factor for coronary artery disease in women younger than 65 who had no history of heart ailments at the beginning of the study.” The findings were scheduled for presentation at the North American Menopause Society’s annual meeting.
