Feeling Down this Winter? Disorder May Be to Blame

COLUMBUS (Andrew Michael/Ken Hines) -- If your mood has taken a dip along with the temperatures this winter, it may be the result of a common medical condition known as Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affects many people during winter months, causing symptoms such as depression, fatigue, and weight gain.

One possible cause of SAD is vitamin D deficiency due to decreased exposure to sunlight during the winter, according to researchers.

Symptoms associated with SAD are usually mild. Anyone experiencing severe depression or other problems possibly linked to the disorder are advised to seek medical help.
