Your comment: NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - People who suffer from major depression are at risk for low bone mineral density (BMD), research hints.
In the last 14 years, "ample research" has implicated major depression in bone loss and the bone-thinning disease osteoporosis, Dr. Raz Yirmiya and Dr. Itai Bab from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel note in the journal Biological Psychiatry.
To investigate further, the investigators pooled data from 23 studies involving 2327 depressed and 21,141 non-depressed adults.
Overall, depressed individuals had less dense bones than non-depressed individuals, they found. Depressed individuals also had increased levels of bone resorption markers.
Based on these findings and prior studies, "We propose that all individuals psychiatrically diagnosed with major depression are at risk for developing osteoporosis, with depressed women -- particularly those who are premenopausal -- showing a higher risk than men," Yirmiya and Bab conclude.
People with major depression should have their BMD checked periodically, they conclude.

Answer: Thank-you Grz for this post!
This reminds me of Dr. Reams telling students that when people get Depressed and irritated they need to increase their Calcium intake, because they are too short of Calcium!
Now who would have ever thought that the shortage of Calcium in Bones makes people Depressed and irritable?
Maybe those who are --NOT-- short of Calcium with Brain Fog?
For when we are Deceived of the Truth, How can We know We are deceived, when we do not know we are deceived?
Cause and Effect!
Smile Tis your choice.
