    Croatian abstract

    METABOLIČKI SINDROM, ANKSIOZNOST, DEPRESIJA I SUICIDALNOST KOD OBOLJELIH OD POSTTRAUMATSKOG STRESNOG POREMEĆAJA I SHIZOFRENIJE ----- Oboljeli od shizofrenije i post-traumatskog stresnog poremećaja (PTSP) imaju značajan psihijatrijski i somatski komorbiditet. Obično imaju visoku učestalost ovisnosti (osobito pušenja), debljine, šećerne bolesti i kardiovaskularnih bolesti. Više je objavljenih radova zadnjih godina koji opisuju metabolički sindrom u psihijatrijskih bolesnika. Ovo istraživanje povezuje parametre metaboličkog sindroma, anksioznost, depresiju i suicidalnost, kod oboljelih od shizofrenije i PTSP-a, u usporedbi sa zdravim ispitanicima. Na ukupnom promatranom uzorku, pronađena je viša izraženost anksioznosti, depresije i nedavnih životnih promjena, kod ispitanika s metaboličkim sindromom u usporedbi s onima koji nemaju metabolički sindrom. Suicidalnost nije bila značajno različita između bolesnika s metaboličkim sindromom u usporedbi s onima koji nemaju metabolički sindrom.

    English abstract

    Persons with schizophrenia and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) tend to have higher psychiatric and somatic morbidity. They typically have higher rates of substances abuse (including smoking), more prevalent obesity, diabetes mellitus, and cardiovascular disease (CVD). This is especially well seen in case of the metabolic syndrome, with a number of published studies on psychiatric patients in the last few years. This study investigated the associations between metabolic syndrome, anxiety, depression and suicidal tendency in schizophrenic and combat-related PTSD patients controlled by healthy controls. Higher rates of anxiety, depression and recent life changes scores in participants with metabolic syndrome were recorded compared to those without metabolic syndrome. Suicidal tendencies were equally present in both groups.
