from HealthDay News via Medical Xpress
Hyperhidrosis is associated with increased prevalence of anxiety and depression, in a HH severity-dependent manner, according to a study published in the December issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology. Dr. Rayeheh Bahar from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, and colleagues examined the prevalence of anxiety and depression in patients with or without HH. A total of 2,017 consecutive dermatology outpatients were assessed for depression and anxiety using Patient Health Questionnaire-9 and Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7 scales.
