Aim: The aim of this study is to investigate metabolic indices associated with use of the antipsychotics and C-Reactive Protein (CRP) levels in patients diagnosed psychotic disorder.
Material and method: In this cross sectional case control study, healthy age and gender matched individuals (n=50) have been enrolled as control group and their obtained data were compared to patients with schizophrenia or other psychotic disorders, composed of twenty five males and twenty five females whose ages ranged between 26 and 54. Data are tabulated by SPSS 15.0 software program.
Results: Fasting glucose, triglycerides, prolactin and CRP levels of patient group were found to be statistically higher than the control group (pConclusions: It has been documented that CRP could be a marker of cardiovascular diseases which may occur in the future. The results of this study generally indicate that psychotic disorder patients treated with antipsychotics have risk of tendency to diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular diseases because of increasing fasting glucose, triglycerides, CRP levels and decreasing HDL level. Therefore, patients who have chronic psychiatric diseases must be evaluated with multidisciplinary approaches and the risk should be considered in patients while selecting drug and determining the life quality.
