Depressed Stroke Survivors May Face Higher Early Death Risk

HealthDay News — People who develop depression after surviving a stroke may die sooner than those without the mental health disorder, a new study suggests.Researchers found that of more than 10,000 Americans followed for two decades, those who developed depression after suffering a stroke were about three times more likely to die of any cause during the study period, versus people without either condition.Stroke survivors without depression also faced a heightened death risk, but it was less pronounced: They were 80 percent more likely to die during the study period than people with no history of stroke or depression, the investigators found.
