New Study on Depression and Coronary Artery Disease


Certain symptoms of depression could be an early sign of coronary artery disease.

The condition occurs when vessels carrying blood to the heart narrow and thicken.

After following more than 300 elderly adults, researchers found those who exhibited physical signs of depression, such as fatigue and appetite loss were more likely to develop thick arteries.

Other aspects of depression such as anxiety and sadness were not associated with coronary artery disease.
