Factors affecting development of depression in people who drink alcohol
Dom zdravlja, Krupa na Uni, Republika Srpska, Bosna i Hercegovina
Introduction: About 90% of people consume alcohol at some point in their lives. Alcohol abuse occurs in 5-10% of these, while addiction develops in 10% of men and 3-5% of women. Alcohol consumption can induce depression or contribute to its severity. Objective: The study aimed to examine the existence of statistically significant associations between patterns of drinking alcohol, duration of alcohol use, and sociodemographic factors with depression present in persons consuming alcohol. Materials and Methods: The cross-sectional study included 100 individuals, 25.0% women and 75.0% men, with an average of 53.0 ± 1.5 years consuming alcohol over a period of eight months, from 01.10.2018. to 01.06.2019. at the Krupa Health Center on the Una. In addition to the additional tests, they also used the Audit of Identity Disorders Identification Disorders (AUDIT) test and Beck's Depression Inventory (BDI). Results: Participants with harmful alcohol drinking had a statistically significant presence of depression compared to subjects with other alcohol drinking patterns (p <0.05). There was no statistically significant difference in the presence of depression in relation to the duration of alcohol use (p = 0.09) and the gender of subjects consuming alcohol (p = 0.07). Participants aged 40-59 with high school diploma who consumed alcohol had statistically significant presence of depression in relation to other good groups and the level of education (p <0.05).Conclusion: The study confirmed the significant role of harmful alcohol drinking, the age and level of education in the development of depression in persons consuming alcohol.
