AD patients a suicide risk
Atopic dermatitis (AD) patients are more than a third more likely to report suicidal ideation and make suicide attempts, according to a meta-analysis in JAMA Dermatology.
Involving 310,681 AD patients and 4,460,086 controls, the meta-analysis showed that AD patients were 44 per cent more likely to exhibit suicidal ideation and 36 per cent more likely to attempt suicide compared with controls.
