PTSD Connected to the Development of Cardiovascular Disease
A large study from Sweden finds a connection between psychiatric conditions after stressful experiences such as PTSD and acute stress and the risk of development of cardiovascular disease.
For the study, a team of researchers analyzed data from the Swedish National Patient Register on 136,637 patients collected between 1987 and 2013. Patients were diagnosed with stress-related disorders such as PTSD, acute stress reaction, adjustment disorder, and other stress reactions.
The analysis showed that people with a stress-related illness were 64 percent more likely to develop a form of cardiovascular disease in the 12 months after a psychiatric diagnosis compared their unexposed siblings.
The authors of the study write in their paper: “These findings call for enhanced clinical awareness and, if verified, monitoring or early intervention among patients with recently diagnosed stress-related disorders.”
