Depression in Young People Affects the Stomach, Anxiety the Skin

Depression in Young People Affects the Stomach, Anxiety the Skin

I know I have been sharing quite a few posts lately about Depression.  Sadly this is more wide-spread than we think and the more we understand this condition, the better we can deal with it or help someone deal with it.  There are so many forms of Depression and just identifying them could also help us or the patient especially when it concerns young people.

Newswise — Mental disorders and physical diseases frequently go hand in hand. For the first time, psychologists at the University of Basel and Ruhr University Bochum have identified temporal patterns in young people: arthritis and diseases of the digestive system are more common after depression, while anxiety disorders tend to be followed by skin diseases.

Physical diseases and mental disorders affect a person’s quality of life and present a huge challenge for the healthcare system. If physical and mental disorders systematically co-occur from an early age, there is a risk that the sick child or adolescent will suffer from untoward developments.
