Introduction. Major depression in women of reproductive age may be accompanied by multiple endocrine and metabolic disturbances, which, in turn, may affect reproductive functioning. Enhanced cortisol synthesis, impaired leptin production and diminished insulin sensitivity have been reported in some depressed populations. We sought to determine whether an 8-week administration of citalopram would have an effect on these endocrine factors in a group of euglycemic depressed and non-depressed women… 
Treatment with an SSRI antidepressant restores hippocampo-hypothalamic corticosteroid feedback and reverses insulin resistance in low-birth-weight rats.
TLDR
The data suggest that the insulin resistance and chronic HPA axis hyperactivity in LBW rats can be reversed by treatment with an ESC, which downregulates H PA axis activity, lowers glucocorticoid exposure, and restores insulin sensitivity inLBW rats.
Effects of eicosapentaenoic acid and fluoxetine on plasma cortisol, serum interleukin-1beta and interleukin-6 concentrations in patients with major depressive disorder
TLDR
Findings suggest that EPA may exert its therapeutic effects through reduction of cortisol after 8 weeks of treatment in patients with major depression disorder (MDD) without any significant effect of response to treatment.
The effects of six-day SSRI administration on diurnal cortisol secretion in healthy volunteers
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that escitalopram might exert its therapeutic effect in women in part through correction of a flattened diurnal cortisol rhythm.
Effects of antidepressants on glucose metabolism and diabetes mellitus type 2 in adults
TLDR
SSRIs are preferable in nondiabetic depressed patients since they improve glucose regulation in the short run and may have little untoward effects in the long run, and SSR is the only class of antidepressants with confirmed favorable effects on glycemic control.
Metabolism in adipose tissue in response to citalopram and trimipramine treatment--an in situ microdialysis study.
TLDR
Citalopram and trimipramine affected glucose and lipid metabolism in adipose tissue and resulted in enhanced release of glycerol and free fatty acids into the circulation.
The impact of treatment on HPA axis activity in unipolar major depression.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the utility of cortisol as an outcome measure may be limited to specific subsets of the depressed population, and that given the variability in HPA results between studies, it is premature to state that cortisol is not a good outcome measure.
The role of hormonal, metabolic and inflammatory biomarkers on sleep and appetite in drug free patients with major depression: A systematic review.
TLDR
Interestingly, based on the existing evidence, ghrelin, orexin and nesfatin-1 could be linked both to sleep and appetite regulation in depressed patients, which is interesting to explain the neurobiological substrates of depressive symptoms.
Metabolic risk in depression and treatment with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors: are the metabolic syndrome and an increase in cardiovascular risk unavoidable?
TLDR
The objective of this review was to summarize current views on the pharmacology of SSRIs and cardiometabolic risk, as well as available epidemiological evidence regarding its clinical significance, and to offer improved care in this field.
Leptin in depressed women: cross-sectional and longitudinal data from an epidemiologic study.
TLDR
Women with a lifetime history of depression have elevated levels of serum leptin, and elevated serum leptin predicts subsequent development of a depressive disorder, independent of BMI.
An initial exploration of hair cortisol responses to antidepressants in unmedicated patients with depression
TLDR
Hair cortisol concentration analysis could be used to monitor the dynamics of the effects of antidepressants on the HPA axis and no significant correlation was found between Hamilton Depression Rating Scale scores and HCC at pre-treatment or post-treatment.

Elevated nocturnal profiles of serum leptin in patients with depression.
TLDR
It is proposed that hypercortisolism in depression might counteract the reduction in leptin secretion caused by decreased food intake and weight loss, and provide some evidence that in young female patients the normal nocturnal leptin surge is blunted.
Plasma leptin in depressed patients and healthy controls.

TLDR
It is concluded that leptin plasma concentrations are unchanged in depression and that there is no evidence for leptin playing a major role in loss of appetite and body weight in depressed patients.
Lipid metabolism and insulin resistance in depressed patients: significance of weight, hypercortisolism, and antidepressant treatment.
TLDR
Treatment of depression exerts a mainly beneficial effect on lipid regulation, and the inverse correlation of cortisol and cholesterol, at least in the obese subgroup, proposes a mechanism for the known association of depression with low cholesterol.
Insulin resistance in patients with depression and its changes during the clinical course of depression: minimal model analysis.
TLDR
It is concluded that patients with depression have impaired insulin sensitivity and resultant hyperinsulinemia and that these abnormalities can be resolved after recovery from depression.
Effects of Antidepressants on Weight and on the Plasma Levels of Leptin, TNF-α and Soluble TNF Receptors: A Longitudinal Study in Patients Treated with Amitriptyline or Paroxetine
TLDR
It is concluded that weight gain induced by psychotropic agents may occur without increased circulating levels of leptin, however, activation of the TNF-α system might be an early and sensitive marker of ensuing weight gain.
Fluoxetine improves insulin sensitivity in obese patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus independently of weight loss
TLDR
Fluoxetine improves insulin-mediated glucose disposal in obese patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus with NIDDM independently of weight loss.
Fluoxetine increases insulin action in obese type II (non-insulin dependent) diabetic patients.
TLDR
Fluoxetine improves peripheral and hepatic insulin action in obese insulin-resistant subjects irrespective of its weight lowering effect, in a double-blind placebo-controlled cross-over study on obese NIDDM patients and non-diabetics.
Depressive symptoms and the glucose tolerance test and insulin tolerance test.
TLDR
Within the sydrome of depression, increased FFA is realated to anxiety, decreased glucose utilization is related to motor retardation, emotional withdrawal, and blunt affect, and that decreased FFA and HGH responsiveness to insulin is a nonspecific correlate of the general depressive syndrome.
Use of Antidepressants in Treatment of Comorbid Diabetes Mellitus and Depression as Well as in Diabetic Neuropathy
TLDR
In comorbid diabetes mellitus and depression, most evidence supports the use of fluoxetine in control of glucose handling and other characteristics in terms dosing, drug interactions, cognition, and sleep make sertraline an attractive alternative agent.
Evidence that insulin and androgens may participate in the regulation of serum leptin levels in women.
TLDR
In normal weight patients serum leptin levels may be regulated in part by insulin and androgens, on the other hand, may play a role in suppressing serum leptin.
