Abstract :
Background disorders, especially depression, are one of the principal causes of disablement. Previous research has been limited partly due to the failure to take into account sub-syndromal states and the very large number of candidate mediating and confounding factors. s udinal associations between baseline depressive symptomatology and activity limitations were examined in a community-dwelling elderly cohort of 3191 participants. Mixed logistic models were used to determine associations between mild or severe depressive symptoms (Center for Epidemiologic Studies-Depression Scale, CES-D), and 7-year incident disability on four limitation scales assessing instrumental and basic activities of daily living, mobility using the Rosow and Breslau scale, and social restriction. s , mild depressive symptomatology was associated with increased incident limitations on instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) (odds ratio (OR) (95% CI) = 5.07 (2.25–11.42)). In women, severe depressive symptomatology was related to social restriction (OR (95% CI) = 2.36 (1.31–4.25)), IADL (OR (95% CI) = 1.89 (1.13–3.15)) and activities of daily living (OR (95% CI) = 11.15 (3.43–36.23)). Men and women with a 2-year increase in CES-D score were highly at risk for social restriction and limitations in mobility and IADL. sion sion is an independent predictor of disability in the elderly population; the relation is gender-dependent and varies with symptom load.
