Depression a key cause for Suicides

Depression a key cause for Suicides

The underlying cause of 70 per cent of suicides is depression. For every suicide, around ten more attempted suicides would have occurred.

M. Chandrasekharan Nair, city-based psychiatrist, speaking to The Hindu, said that a government directive on treating a patient jointly by a general physician and a psychiatrist for every attempted suicide case could perhaps help in detecting depression and bringing down cases of suicides.

The stigma of getting treated by a psychiatrist continues to be the hurdle in people reaching out for support and care for better mental health, said Dr. Nair.

Depression is a worldwide phenomenon and about 30 per cent of patients reaching for primary care and specialty care have this problem, he said. However, the patients never realise it nor are the treating physicians oriented towards understanding depression in patients.

Sleep can put you at risk of diabetes

A Harvard University study claims too little or too much sleep puts older women at a risk for diabetes.

Older women who get too little or even too much sleep are at greater risk of diabetes, new research suggests. The study suggests that chronic short sleep duration of six hours or less, or increasing average sleeping time by two hours or more over a period of several years, increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes in middle-aged and older women.

Researchers concluded that increasing sleep duration by two hours or more increased the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 15 per cent -even factoring in variations in diet, physical activity, snoring, sleep apnoea, depression and bodymass index (BMI).​Previous research has shown that too much or too little sleep increases the risk of diabetes, with the lowest risk shown for those who sleep between seven and eight hours per day.

Save your Bones with these Tips

One woman in every four who fractures a hip never comes out of hospital -she dies there. This is a statistic provided by the UK-based National Osteoporosis Society. Worse still, the organisation's report reveals that one in five women has to suffer three fractures before the diagnosis of their brittle bones -not surprising, given that, after hitting menopause, a woman can lose a whopping one-third of her bone in three years. The latest report from the National Osteoporosis Society emphasises the unnecessary suffering that women are experiencing. It makes painful reading. In a poll of 1,551 people across Britain, including 972 women aged 50-70 who had broken bones, the charity found GPs and hospital staff often fail to follow up those at risk.

In total, one in eight of those who had more than three broken bones said that they had never discussed osteoporosis with the doctors treating their fractures. About 2.3 million women over the age of 50 have osteoporosis, which the poll found i
