  13. Association between lipid profile and depressive symptoms among Chinese older people: mediation by cardiovascular diseases?

    International Journal of Behavioral Medicine 21(4):590 (2014) PMID 24136399

    The potential mediating effect of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) (e.g., ischemic heart disease and stroke) on the association between abnormal serum lipids and late-life depressive symptoms has not been investigated. We aimed to examine the associations between serum lipids and elevated depressi...
