What is RDW? Sounds complicated? It is a part of a standard complete blood count - so it's easy to check!

"Elevated red blood distribution widths are associated with anemia, but it also appears to be associated with other poor outcomes, like heart attacks, heart failure, death and now depression," said Heidi May, PhD, MSPH, the study's principal researcher.

A simple RDW test can now help doctors identify heart patients at risk of depresssion - and get strategies to help the patient sooner.
