Clinical correlates of circadian rhythm in bipolar disorder
Outi Linnaranta, MD, PhD
Outi Linnaranta, MD, PhD, is a clinical psychiatrist and adjunct professor of psychiatry. She has worked in detecting phenotypes that would be clinically useful predictors of outcome in severe mental illness, be that symptom profiles, biomarkers, culturally sensitive tools, or objective psychophysiological monitoring. Over the past three years, she has coordinated implementation of the Finnish Mental Health Strategy as the medical director.
In this presentation, she will summarize main results from the Helsinki Early Psychosis Study. The results propose early activation and dysregulation of immune response, associated with increased glucose and lipid levels in peripheral blood. Insulin resistance was a strong predictor of increase in weight over the first months.
