CSP #569: Veteran Health Study
Alternate title: A Twin Study of the Course and Consequence of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in Vietnam Era Veterans
This study used the Vietnam-Era Twin (VET) Registry to examine the mental and physical health of Vietnam-era Veterans as they age. The study was designed to estimate current prevalence of mental and physical health conditions and to answer questions about how PTSD might influence the lives of Veterans decades after the end of the war. The relationship between PTSD and cardiovascular disease, and PTSD and diabetes, was of particular interest.
