Comorbidity In Psychiatry

There is ongoing debate regarding the handling of comorbidity in psychiatric disorders, and determining whether the issue lies with the categorizations of diagnostic conventions or if there is an underlying pathology that links multiple diseases.

Depression and Diabetes

Depression is at least twice as common in people with diabetes as in the general population, but this common comorbidity is frequently underdiagnosed and undertreated. As chronic depression can reduce treatment adherence and worsen glycaemic control, there is a pressing need to improve clinical diagnosis and management of depression in patients with diabetes to minimise the risk of long-term diabetes complications and improve quality of life. Discover the latest research on depression and diabetes here.

Electroconvulsive Therapy

Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) is a well-established effective treatment strategy in treatment-refractory depression. Discover the latest research on ECT here.

Epigenetics & Psychiatry

Psychiatric disorders are known to be multifaceted in their pathophysiology. Because epigenetic changes can be sensitive to the environment, inherited, and reversible, the study of epigenetics in psychiatric disease is a logical way to understand the natural history of the disease as well as to develop therapeutics. Find the latest research on epigenetics and psychiatry here.
