Uneasy to talk about costs of stillbirth?

BJOG. 2017 Oct 21;:

Authors: Erwich JJHM

Abstract
In this BJOG stillbirth themed issue, Campbell et al BJOG 2018 XX.XXX report on a population-based cost of illness study. Although reports on costs in healthcare are not unusual, and even quality of life studies are incorporating translations of quality of life into money-estimates, one can feel uneasy when talking about money regarding stillbirth. It seems insensitive towards the people suffering from their loss. How can one put a monetary value on a life not yet lived? However, these authors should be congratulated for building upon earlier work in their effort to tackle this difficult and long neglected topic (Heazell et al Lancet 2016;387:604-616).

Does obesity along with major depression or anxiety lead to higher use of health care and costs? A 6-year follow-up study.

Does obesity along with major depression or anxiety lead to higher use of health care and costs? A 6-year follow-up study.

Eur J Public Health. 2017 Sep 11;:

Authors: Nigatu YT, Bültmann U, Schoevers RA, Penninx BWJH, Reijneveld SA

Abstract
Background: Evidence lacks on whether obesity along with major depression (MD)/anxiety leads to higher health care use (HCU) and health care-related costs (HCC) compared with either condition alone. The objective of the study was to examine the longitudinal associations of obesity, MD/anxiety, and their combination with HCU and HCC.
Methods: Longitudinal data (2004-2013) among N = 2706 persons at baseline and 2-,4-, and 6-year follow-up were collected on obesity, MD/anxiety and HCU.
Results: The combination of obesity and MD/anxiety was associated with an increased risk of primary and specialty care visits, and of hospitalizations, odds ratios (95%-confidence intervals): 1.83 (1.44; 2.34), 1.31 (1.06; 1.61) and 1.79 (1.40; 2.29) compared to non-obese and non-depressed individuals. The primary and specialty care costs were higher in persons with obesity and MD/anxiety than in persons without these conditions, but the relative excess risk due to interactions between obesity and MD/anxiety regarding HCU and HCC were not statistically significant (i.e. no synergistic effect).
Conclusions: Obesity along with MD/anxiety leads to higher HCU and HCC over time. However, the HCC associated with the joint presence of both conditions are not higher than the sum of the HCC due to each condition independently.
