#BloodTest for #Depression Someday

Can depression be measured in your blood? This is an interesting question considering many people suffer with it but just sweep it under the rug for stigma reasons or because they don’t realize they can live a more joyful life.

Now researchers are trying to take part of the guessing game out of the equation. A blood test may identify a deficiency linked to depression. This could be a game changer for those saddled with the unrelenting sadness.

The naturally-occurring amino acid is acetyl-L-carnitine, Researchers found that people who live with severe depression have lower levels of the protein. It has been touted for its enhancements to brain function, cognitive improvements, and combating neurodegenerative conditions like Alzheimer’s and dementia. It’s available on Amazon, but that may change once the FDA classifies it as a viable way to “treat” depression.

This blood test may be available in the near future and may likely improve the lives of nearly 10% of the population. Here in the United States, nearly 30 million people live with depression, many of whom are undiagnosed therefore untreated. Depression is not just one condition – often it affects the body in a variety of ways. Perhaps this is the new dawn for the world to turn that internal frown upside down.
