Do you or a loved one suffer from Bipolar Disorder? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. According to the World Health Organization, 60 million people worldwide are affected by bipolar disorder. The disorder causes manic and depressive episodes. During manic episodes, a person can feel like they have unlimited energy and hardly sleep. Depressive episodes are the opposite, a person has low to little energy and loses interest in day to day activities. A new article published in The Lancet Psychiatry suggests that early care is key to helping people with bipolar disorder have a better quality of life. People living with the disorder have a higher risk for self harm and suicide. The earlier the treatment, the fewer relapses. Talk to your doctor if you are experiencing symptoms of bipolar disorder.
