Borderline Personality and Bipolar Disorders Cannot Be Differentiated Electrophysiologically.

Conclusion. The findings suggested that these 2 clinical entities are biologically similar; however, further research should be performed to explain the basis clinical differences between the 2 disorders. PMID: 31282204 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: Mortality is substantially elevated in all SMI patients. The results underline the need to remove barriers to adequate general medical care, both on the patient and the provider side, to reduce excess mortality. PMID: 31366432 [PubMed - in process]

The current study sought to identify features offering differentiation of borderline personality disorder (BPD) from bipolar disorder (BP). Participants were clinically assessed and assigned diagnoses based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders criteria. A 113-item self-report questionnaire was completed, comprising cognitive and behavioral constructs weighted to a borderline personality style. A total of n = 53 participants were assigned to BPD, n = 83 to BP, with comorbid participants excluded. Twenty items were highly endorsed (>95%) by the BPD group, with most of the features capturing emotion...

CONCLUSIONS: BPD was found in 15% of adolescents and they have higher proportion of BED and BSD. Early identification may help in planning early intervention strategies to reduce associated morbidity. PMID: 31302438 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study involved 714 adult patients with a primary diagnosis of BD per DSM-IV criteria who were admitted to the psychiatric unit at an academic hospital in Houston, TX between July 2013 and July 2018. All patients completed the BPQ within 72 hours of admission. Statistical analysis was used to detect correlations between severity of BD, length of stay (LOS), and scores on the BPQ. A machine learning model was constructed to predict the parameters affecting patients’ readmission rates within 30 days. Results: Analysis revealed that the severity of certain BPD traits at baseline was associated with mood state and...

Impulsivity is a psychiatric symptom that seems to be more prevalent in some mental disorders such as bipolar disorders (BDs). It is a trait that seems to be influenced by many clinical and sociodemographic variables across BD. To examine the relationship between impulsivity and these variables, we performed a cross-sectional study on 50 patients diagnosed with BD and 50 healthy subjects. Both groups were administered the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale; the Structural Clinical Interview for Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition, for borderline personality disorder; the Beirut District Scale; and t...

Many factors, including childhood abuse and trauma, have been implicated in the development of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) [1, 2]. The present study used the Early Trauma Inventory Self-Report Short Form (ETI-SR-SF) and The Borderline Personality Questionnaire (BPQ) to examine the prevalence of early trauma and BPD, respectively, as well as their potential relationship in patients with Bipolar Disorder.

Impulsivity represents one of the pivotal characteristics of bipolar disorder (BD). Structural magnetic resonance imaging techniques have already demonstrated a relationship between high levels of impulsivity and reduced subcortical and limbic structure volumes in subjects with cocaine abuse, depression, and borderline personality disorder. However, such relationship has not established yet in BP. The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between impulsivity and limbic and subcortical volumes in patients with BD.

In this study, using multiple linear regression analysis, we found that decreased emotion coping appraisal of resilience in young adults was explained by an increased tendency to update beliefs about cue–outcome associative probability in a volatile environment and the increase in the parental verbal abuse experienced in early childhood. The total scores of resilience appraisals were also explained in the same manner (see Supplementary Tables 4 and 7). In addition, we did not find any effect of gender on the results both with whole subject (Figure 4) and in the gender-matched subgroup (see Supplementary Figure 3).Not...

ak H Abstract Psychiatric disorders and psychological problems are common in patients with diabetes mellitus. There is a twofold increase in depression which is associated with suboptimal glycemic control and increased morbidity and mortality. Other psychiatric disorders with a higher incidence of diabetes mellitus are cognitive impairment, dementia, disturbed eating behavior, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, bipolar disorders and borderline personality disorder. The coincidence of mental disorders and diabetes mellitus has unfavorable influences on metabolic control and micro- and macroangiopathic comp...
