Late-Life Depression

Posted by iskanbasal on November 30, 2007

Late-Life Depression

A 71-year-old man, whose wife died 6 months previously, presents with foot pain from diabetic neuropathy, poor sleep, lack of energy, and increasing frustration about his inability to “keep his diabetes under control.” On examination, he also notes lack of interest in usual activities, decreased appetite, a weight loss of 4.5 kg (10 lb) over the past 3 months, and intermittent thoughts . . .

This is the theme of the last audio article at the NEJM . It is one of the most important subjects in geriatric medicine.

Listen to the audio.
