- The authors asked which obesity measurements were associated with depressive symptoms, whether this relationship differed by gender and whether controlling for fatigue and response bias affected the relationship. A sample of 129 subjects (66 men, 63 women), with a mean age of 36.9 years and a mean Body Mass Index (BMI) of 264 participated in the study. Depressive symptoms, levels of fatigue, response bias, and anthropometrics were assessed. In women, but not men, BMI and percent of ideal body weight were related to depression. However percent of body fat did not show a relationship with depression after controlling for fatigue and response bias. These findings suggest that women's depressive symptoms are more influenced by body size than body fat composition, whereas men's depressive symptoms seem to be unrelated to obesity.
