Researchers discover link between schizophrenia and diabetes
Date:3/30/2009

se diabetes risk.

One recent study based on data from the Clinical Antipsychotic Trials of Intervention Effectiveness Schizophrenia Trial showed the prevalence rate of metabolic syndrome, a group of risk factors that include abdominal obesity, high lipid and cholesterol blood levels and insulin resistance, is more than 50 percent in women and about 37 percent in men with schizophrenia.

"Many people focus on the brain function part of the disease, but patients also have other medical problems that can't be attributed to other factors," Dr. Kirkpatrick says. "Bad things that happen in utero and at birth, such as prenatal famine and low birth weight, have both been shown to increase the risk of diabetes and schizophrenia. Problems in early development can leave a lasting impact."

Establishing the link between the diseases may help scientists further understand the genetics of schizophrenia, he says.

"And that may eventually enable some sort of intervention strategy."
