Depression Is a Risk Factor for Cardiometabolic Multimorbidity

Cardiometabolic multimorbidity is characterized as having two of the following three conditions: hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Past research has shown that individuals who meet these criteria have a 12-15 reduced life expectancy. A recent study found that depression is associated with up to a 68% increased risk for developing cardiometabolic multimorbidity during a twelve-year timeframe.
