Scientists have figured out a way to identify those most at risk of suicidal behavior based only on biological markers in their blood. The analysis isn't foolproof, but in a test of nearly 200 participants – half of whom had major depressive disorder and suicidal ideation and half of whom did not – the accuracy of diagnosis was around 90 percent. That impressive result was achieved using just a few markers of energy production in the body's cells: five metabolites in the bloodwork of female participants and a slightly different five in males. While the symptoms of major depressive disorder (MDD) are primarily psychological, in the past decade or so, research has increasingly found a link between depression and metabolic diseases. Both conditions feature underlying chronic inflammatory states. The study was published in Translational Psychiatry. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41398-023-02696-9
