A definite link between depression and anxiety, obesity and migraines has been found by researchers at the University of Toledo College of Medicine, Ohio.

They had found evidence of there being an increased incidence of obesity and migraines in the last number of years, and sought answers to explain the prevalence.

They noted that there was a possible connection between the increase and the emotional disorders of anxiety and depression, and took on a large focus group to determine if any correlation was present. They used from the focus group questionnaires which spanned a plethora of everyday questions boiling down to question about health and the loss of productivity as a result of bad health.

They incorporated into the questionnaires questions that dealt with headache frequency, days of work missed as a result, the individuals weight and body mass index and also pertained to amass information on psychiatric conditions amongst the group which had been diagnosed.

Their results showed that a definite link exists just as they had assumed. In 70% of the obese participants anxiety existed, with 42% of the obese in the survey reporting that they had a high incidence of migraines.

The main finding of the survey was that the conditions of depression, and anxiety are most prevalent in obese migraine sufferers.
