Depressive symptoms, perceived stress, and metabolic health: the REGARDS study.
The purpose of this study was to describe the relationship between metabolic health parameters and depressive symptoms and perceived stress, and determine whether the co-occurrence of these two psychological stressors had an additive influence on metabolic dysregulation in adults at different levels of body mass index (BMI) without diabetes. The investigators found that elevated depressive symptoms in conjunction with high levels of perceived stress were more strongly associated with several parameters of metabolic health than only one of these psychological constructs in a large, diverse cohort of adults.
