Exercise, Yoga, and Tai Chi for Treatment of Major Depressive Disorder in Outpatient Settings: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.
Conclusions: The current meta-analysis of outpatient exercise, yoga, and tai chi for treatment of major depressive disorder suggests that adjunctive exercise and yoga may have small additive clinical effects in comparison to control for reducing depressive symptoms. The evidence for tai chi is insufficient to draw conclusions. The concerns with quality of studies, high heterogeneity, and evidence of publication bias preclude making firm conclusions.

Early Diagnosis and Management of Bulimia Nervosa in Type 1 Diabetes.
Authors: Yahya AS, Khawaja S, Chukwuma J, Chukwuma C Abstract Treatment outcomes for bulimia nervosa in type 1 diabetes are worse than those for conventional bulimia nervosa. These outcomes may be a consequence of late detection and subsequent management. The combination of these disorders has been referred to as diabulimia; however, this is not an official diagnosis and is a colloquial term used by patients and the media to describe the associated maladaptive pattern of compensatory behaviors. Early intervention is required to prevent short- and longer-term complications, with intensive treatment approaches having...

Psychiatric Disorder in Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome-Hypermobility Type.
Authors: Yahya AS, Khawaja S Abstract Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome-hypermobility type (EDS-HT) are disorders that have a strong association and share a relationship with some mental illnesses. Both are commonly misdiagnosed as mental disorders possibly because they share a similar phenomenology to some. There is limited awareness and recognition of POTS and EDS-HT, which subsequently delays diagnosis. The presence of an underlying mental disorder can complicate the diagnosis and management of an already challenging case, which can cause further strain to patients and t...
