what causes depression. But a prominent theory is altered brain structure
and chemical function. Brain circutes that regulate mood
may work less efficiently during depression. Drugs that treat depression
are believed to improve the communication between the nerve
cells and making them run more normally. Experts also think that
while stress, such as losing a lot one can trigger depression one must first be biologically prone
to develop the disorder. Other triggers could include
alcohol, tobacco, substance abuse hormonal change or even changes
in the season. How do we diagnose depression? As of yet, there is no lab test
for depression. Doctors completely rely on the patient’s
description of the symptoms to make an accurate diagnosis. Patients may be asked
about their medical history and medication use, since these may
contribute to the symptoms of depression. Discussing about a patient’s mood,
their behaviour and their daily activities can help
reveal the severity of depression level. And this is one of the most critical step
to diagnose and to give the best treatment. So friends, in today’s episode,
