Chromium picolinate is a real breakthrough in providing safe and simple relief of atypical depression
symptoms, many of which currently go untreated.
The specific pharmacotherapy used for patients with atypical depression
is more a matter of nuance of--rather than a wholesale departure from--the standard depression algorithm.
Carbohydrate cravings, weight gain and unexplained fatigue are hallmark symptoms of atypical depression
, a common, but frequently undiagnosed, depressive disorder estimated to affect as many as one-third of depressed patients.
These results suggest that the use of chromium picolinate may be beneficial for patients with atypical depression
who also have severe carbohydrate craving," said the study's lead investigator, John P.
Those patients could benefit from using monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors, since those drugs are most effective in atypical depression
or hysteroid dysphoria, which often occurs with irritability, sensitivity to rejection, loneliness, anger, and eating and sleeping too much.
A large and growing body of scientific data suggests that chromium picolinate may help lower some risk factors for diseases associated with insulin resistance, such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and even atypical depression
Less-frequent diagnoses in the arrest group included atypical depression
(five subjects), schizophrenia or borderline personality disorder (three subjects each), and schizophreniform disorder, bipolar affective disorder, or major depression (two subjects each).
Recent research suggests that chromium enhances insulin action, which may help lower some risk factors for diseases associated with insulin resistance, such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and atypical depression
