|Association Between Rhinitis and Depression in United States Adults
||BACKGROUND: Growing evidence suggests a link between allergic disorders and depression, but literature assessing the association between rhinitis and depression is conflicting, and large population-based studies are lacking. OBJECTIVE: To assess the association between depression and rhinitis in a representative sample of United States adults. METHODS: We performed a cross-sectional analysis of 4,320 participants in the 2005-2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Rhinitis was defined as self-reported hay fever and/or nasal symptoms in the past 12 months.
