Gender Identity Disorder, Schizophrenia and Violence

NIH Knows the Connection

From NIH’s National Library of Medicine, a simple search of their library leads us to articles on the interconnections of Gender Identity Disorder and Schizophrenia, Schizophrenia and Violence, and advice to treat violent schizophrenics: 

“it is important to identify vulnerable schizophrenia populations and provide efficient treatment”

“clozapine may be the only effective antipsychotic medication to repress aggressive behavior”

We continue to witness a tragic trend in mass shootings in news reports via X:
 


The internet works hard to deny connections between “schizophrenia and violence” – try searching for it; however, some truth can be found in NIH National Library of Medicine articles.

Gender Identity Disorder linked to Schizophrenia.

Gender identity disorder (GID), recently renamed gender dysphoria (GD), is a rare condition characterized by an incongruity between gender identity and biological sex. Clinical evidence suggests that schizophrenia occurs in patients with GID at rates higher than in the general population and that patients with GID may have schizophrenia-like personality traits.  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4274821/

A relationship between two distinct disorders can be inferred if they cooccur at a higher level than would be expected by chance. According to recent estimates, the prevalence of schizophrenia is approximately 1 to 8 per 1,000 population [6], and that of GID is even lower, estimated at around 1 in 10,000 for male-to-female GID and less than 1 in 25,000 for female-to-male GID [7]. Their cooccurrence would therefore be expected to be rare: a crude estimate, obtained by multiplying prevalences, would be less than 1 in 1,000,000 individuals.  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4274821/ 

  1. Schizophrenia linked to Violence.

Although the majority of patients with schizophrenia are not actually violent, an increased tendency toward violent behaviors is known to be associated with schizophrenia. There are several factors to consider when identifying the subgroup of patients with schizophrenia who may commit violent or aggressive acts. Comorbidity with substance abuse is the most important clinical indicator of increased aggressive behaviors and crime rates in patients with schizophrenia. Genetic studies have proposed that polymorphisms in the promoter region of the serotonin transporter gene and in the catechol-O-methyltransferase gene are related to aggression. Neuroimaging studies have suggested that fronto-limbic dysfunction may be related to aggression or violence. By identifying specific risk factors, a more efficient treatment plan to prevent violent behavior in schizophrenia will be possible. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6852683/ 

  1. It is important to identify vulnerable schizophrenia populations and provide efficient treatment.

Management of comorbid substance use disorder may help prevent violent events and overall aggression. Currently, clozapine may be the only effective antipsychotic medication to repress aggressive behavior. With the current medical field moving toward tailored medicine, it is important to identify vulnerable schizophrenia populations and provide efficient treatment.  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6852683/

Liberals need to stop pretending everything is ok.  

Pray for all those that suffer in these shootings, and work to identify and treat schizophrenics so that this can be avoided in the future.
