    Mild Depression Can Damage Immune System

    Mild Depression Can Damage Immune System (Health Central)
    THURSDAY, Oct. 16 (HealthDayNews) -- Even a bout of mild depression can throw off a person's immune system, a change that can set up older adults for development of serious age-related diseases.

    It suggests low levels of depression are associated with an increased IL-6 response to an antigen, Glaser says. Sustained higher-than-normal levels of IL-6 have been linked to long-term inflammation which, in turn, is implicated in a number of age-related health problems such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, arthritis, cancers, Alzheimer's and periodontal disease.
