DEPRESSION LEADS TO BONE LOSS?

This morning I read an abstract in the Journal of the American Geriactrics Society – June 2007 publication. While you cannot access the entire study without a subscription, it seems recent studies reflect older women with depression, have higher bone loss than woman who are not depressed. AND the study concludes that anti-depressents are not the cause. http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/bsc/jgs/2007/00000055/00000006/art00003;jsessionid=2ssxegrb9v1n5.alice
Very interesting – especially if you have a loved one, experiencing mild depression… better get their bone density checked!
