I do not feel well… I feel depressed?

Depression is specified in the DSM IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) as one of the mood disorders. Indicators to see if the person is passing period of depression are:

  • Estado de ánimo depresivo, según lo indica la propia persona o la observación realizada por otros (family, amigos etc.)
  • Pérdida de interés o de la capacidad para el placer
  • Baja autoestima
  • Pérdida de peso o aumento de peso
  • Pérdida o aumento del apetito
  • Insomnia o hipersonmia casi cada día
  • Agitación o enlentecimiento psicomotor
  • Fatiga o pérdida de energía
  • Sentimientos de inutilidad o de culpa excesivos e inapropiados
  • Disminución de la capacidad para concentrarse o tomar decisiones
  • Pensamientos recurrentes de muerte o ideación suicida

Si se reúnen al menos 5 de estos síntomas, con intensidad y durante un periodo de al menos 2 semanas seguidas, donde cada día están presentes estos indicadores, se recomienda recurrir a un profesional de la salud mental. Cabe destacar que queda descartado el diagnostico de depresión si estos síntomas se deben a los efectos de una sustancia o si se deben a los efectos fisiológicos directos de una enfermedad medica.

¿Cómo aparece la depresión?

La causa de la depresión es variada y depende de cada caso en particular, de cada experiencia de vida personal. Es muy importante conocer los antecedentes psicopatológicos en la familia de la persona afectada ya que puede contener un factor genético. Por la tanto puede tener una causa genética, ambiental, externa o interna.

Los acontecimientos psicosociales desempeñan un papel importante en la precipitación de la depresión, ya que la misma puede surgir después de un estrés psicosocial grave como la muerte de un ser querido, un divorcio y distintas situaciones que resulten estresantes para la persona, sintiendo que la situación impacta fuertemente en su mundo interno y externo. Cabe aclarar que este impacto varia de persona en persona, considerando los recursos internos y externos con los que cuenta cada uno.

Este trastorno puede iniciar a cualquier edad, pero las estadísticas muestran que la edad promedio de inicio es a partir de la 3° década de vida.

¿Cómo afecta el estado de ánimo deprimido en la salud?

La depresión impacta fuertemente en la salud física, puede asociarse a enfermedades médicas crónicas, entre ellas el cáncer, ya que el sistema inmunológico se deprime generando consecuencias fisiológicas. Todo el organismo se desestabiliza, la persona no descansa como debería, ni se alimenta de manera adecuada y saludable, inter, lo que afecta directamente a su salud.

Las personas que presentan trastorno depresivo tienen más dolor, más enfermedades físicas y una pobre actividad física social y personal

Recommendations

La primera e indispensable recomendación para una persona que padece depresión es consultar con un profesional de la salud mental (Psicólogo o Psiquiatra). Esto es fundamental para propiciar la recuperación.

No existe una única manera, o una formula general para tratar la depresión, depende del paciente, sus antecedentes familiares, su diagnóstico y su pronóstico. Cada caso es único y por lo tanto cada tratamiento también lo es.

Existen casos que con intervenciones psicoterapéuticas pueden salir adelante y también existen quienes requieren de una valoración psiquiátrica, ya que la depresión se puede deber a la poca segregación de algún componente químico.

Un factor importante a tener en cuenta es lo que usualmente suelen hacer los familiares y amigos de la persona que está deprimida, ellos le piden que salga de ese estado, for example: “vamos”,” Salí”, “divertite”, “ríete”, “hace cosas”. Una persona que esté realmente deprimida no tiene la energía, las ganas y la fortaleza para hacer esto, entonces solo conseguimos que se sienta exigida por su entorno, poco comprendida en su estado y frustrada por no cumplir con los tiempos de otros o con lo que otros quieren de ella. De ninguna manera hay que dejar sola a la persona y no animarla, simplemente tener en cuenta que esto se hace de a poco respetando el ritmo del paciente, de a poco le pedimos que salga, de a poco que disfrute de tal actividad, slowly, a su tiempo y a su ritmo se le proponen actividades con mas personas (cenas con amigos, eventos sociales) etc.. Esto se logra generando empatía con la persona.

Es indispensable la consulta con el profesional de salud mental, el cual a demás va a guiar a la familia del paciente en su accionar.

Continuous Integral Plan

Continuous Integral Plan

The ongoing plan design is based on an essential premise:

How to sustain and continue the weight reduction achieved

The major problem with the majority of cases there is a reduction in weight, but keep in time. Are harmonious in an interdisciplinary, have a program that would allow closer monitoring of the patient's progress in their daily field.

*Pull. Roxana Viscovig, Medical Nutritionist. MP: 27.742/2 ME: 13.164

This serial proposed short stay, medium or long-term, performed in fairly regular times and allow continuous monitoring of the patient. For example, can be made stays 4 a 7 day, but each 45 the 60 days, thus achieving weight control changes that may occur in an effective and secure. Or you may develop complementary prolongado of 30 a 60 days Continuous format.

The work of professionals is to provide support and information. It is carried out not only during the patient's stay, but in the time between graduation and stays, either telephone or mail, achieving communication and ongoing support.
The patient is the main part of this process, and that the information received is adding to your daily life to be changing unhealthy habits (eat a lot and move little) for healthy lifestyles (eat little and move more).

As a result of this process the person can achieve their best possible weight, since the goal is not to make a "steady diet", but definitive change of habit. Since many global studies that talk about the benefits of changing habit interdisciplinary control framework, and that is the main goal of the program.
