Depression and heart disease deadly

16th September 2010

British and French researchers have found that the combination of depression and coronary heart disease in a patient could be much more deadly than either condition alone.

Teams from the University College London and the University of Versailles followed the health of just under 6,000 male and female civil servants for an average of five and a half years and found that people with both conditions could be four times more likely to die from heart or circulatory disease. The study is published in Heart journal.
