Obe­sity causes de­pres­sion

Diabetic Living - - Welcome -

New re­search pub­lished in the In­ter­na­tional Jour­nal of Epi­demi­ol­ogy – con­ducted by the Univer­sity of South Aus­tralia and the UK’s Univer­sity of Ex­eter – found the psy­cho­log­i­cal im­pact of be­ing over­weight or obese causes de­pres­sion, whether there is a pres­ence of other health is­sues or not. “Our re­search shows that be­ing over­weight doesn’t just in­crease the risks of chronic dis­eases, it can also lead to de­pres­sion,” says UniSA Pro­fes­sor Elina Hyp­po­nen.
