Treatment of Depression More Than Triples in the US Over the Last 10 Years

Among people receiving treatment for depression in the US, the percentage of those on antidepressant medication has risen dramatically, while fewer are opting for time on the couch in psychotherapy.

The number of Americans treated for depression soared from 1.7 million to 6.3 million between 1987 and 1997, and the proportion of those receiving antidepressants doubled.

The researchers attributed the sharp increases to the emergence of aggressively marketed new drugs like Prozac, the rise in managed care and an easing of the stigma attached to the disease.

The study found that the share of patients who used antidepressant medication climbed from 37% to nearly 75%. At the same time, the proportion who received psychotherapy declined from 71% to 60%.

The publicizing of newer antidepressants that have fewer side effects - such as Prozac, which was introduced in late 1987 - has helped make patients more willing to seek treatment, the researchers said. This publicity has included pharmaceutical industry efforts to market the drugs directly to consumers and public-awareness campaigns about depression. Read more...

Studies Uncover Genes Boosting Type 2 Diabetes Risk

(HealthDay News) -- Scientists have found several new genes that appear to increase the risk for developing type 2 diabetes.

Researchers say these findings bring to 10 the number of genes suspected in increasing the odds for type 2 diabetes, the most common, obesity-linked form of the disease. Understanding how these genes contribute to the disorder may lead to new strategies for prevention and treatment. The studies appear in the April 26 online editions of Nature Genetics and Science.

"This is clearly a start in understanding the disease," said Dr. Larry Deeb, president for medicine and science at the American Diabetes Association. "Type 2 diabetes is multifactorial, there is not one gene associated with it, and yet we know it runs in families, so it has to be genetic."

Deeb is not sure how much the genetic risk adds to the propensity for developing the disease. Either having or not having the genetic risk is not a guarantee of getting or not getting the disease, he added. Read more...
