Childhood maltreatment linked to higher risk of multiple health conditions in later life
from University of Glasgow
People who suffer one or more forms of maltreatment in childhood have a higher chance of multimorbidity in later life. New research, led by scientists at the University of Glasgow, used UK Biobank data from more than 157,000 participants to examine the link between the four forms of childhood maltreatment – physical, sexual, emotional and neglect – and the presence of multiple health conditions, known as multimorbidity, later in adult life.
