Abstract

Objective: The burden of medical comorbidities was compared between older (≥ 60 years) and younger patients with serious mental illness. Methods: Patients (N = 8,083) diagnosed with schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, or bipolar disorder in 2001 were identified from VA facilities in the mid-Atlantic region. Medical comorbidities were identified by an ICD-9-based clinical classification algorithm. Results: Older, versus younger, patients were more likely to be diagnosed with cardiovascular or pulmonary conditions, and less likely to be diagnosed with substance-use disorders or hepatic conditions. Conclusions: More aggressive detection and management of general-medical comorbidities in older patients with serious mental illness is paramount.
