Anxiety and depression are disorders that are under constant scrutiny and research, not only to find treatment options but mainly to understand the causes. Identifying, understanding, and diagnosing the factors that can lead to anxiety disorders and depression are the first steps to treating patients with mental health problems.

According to a report published by Transparency Market Research, the global market for anxiety disorders and depression treatment is projected to register a growth rate of 1.25% from 2014 to 2020, driven by the accelerating prevalence of depression and anxiety disorders.

Here are the top five developments made by scientists and researchers in the month of August alone.

Anxiety, Depression, and Gut Bacteria

Researchers at the McMaster University in Canada have found recent evidence of the massive influence of gut bacteria on mental health. Research suggests that a healthy microbiome can result in a healthy brain and good mood. Gut bacteria imbalances, according to studies, have been linked to a host of mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, and autism. Gut dysfunction can be attributed to a stressful childhood, according to the McMaster University study published in the journal Nature Communications.

Picky Eating May Hint at Mental Health Issues

A new study by a team of researchers at Duke University have discovered that picky or selective eating in kids may be tied to depression, anxiety, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The study published in the journal Pediatrics indicates that children with heightened sensory experiences are just as sensitive to the food they eat. The researchers also found that adults who are picky eaters are more likely to have higher rates of psychological disorders compared to the general public.

Patients with Rheumatic Diseases More likely to Suffer from Anxiety and Depression

An increased prevalence of depression and anxiety has been observed among patients with rheumatic diseases, according to researchers in Portugal. Of the 84 patients with rheumatoid arthritis studied, 46 patients showed symptoms of depression and anxiety. While 30 of those indicated moderate depression or anxiety, 14 patients were classified with severe forms of depression or anxiety.

Confirmed Link between Hearing Loss and Depression or Anxiety

According to a research presented at the American Psychological Association, people with untreated hearing loss are more susceptible to dementia, depression, and other cognitive disorders over time. Getting treated for hearing loss at an early stage can help patient regain control of their life and become emotionally and cognitively stable. However, people who prefer to live with hearing loss rather than seeking treatment are more inclined to suffer from feelings of despair, rage, and disappointment, resulting in greater chances of developing cognitive issues.

Social Hierarchy Influences Mental Health

A person’s social class impacts his or her likelihood of developing depression or anxiety, according to researchers at Columbia University. They indicate that individuals near the middle of the social ladder are more prone to mental health imbalances. Social disadvantage associated to educational and income attainment is linked with the most severe mental health outcomes.

Leading players in the market have been working round the clock to develop innovative and more efficient drugs and other treatment alternatives to address depression and anxiety disorders.
