Insecure relationships bad for heart

Health Psychology,
July 2010

People who feel insecure in their relationships have a higher risk of developing heart disease and other health problems.

Attachment insecurity has been hypothesised to be a risk factor for disease development and chronic illness. To investigate the association between attachment rating and overall health of adults, researchers studied 5,645 adults, aged between 18 and 60 years, who completed a questionnaire about their attachment and relationships. The participants also provided details regarding their history of 15 health conditions.

An association was found between avoidant attachment - people who feel unable to get close to others or have others depend on them - and chronic pain, such as frequent or severe headaches. People who were insecure in their relationships had further risks. Anxious attachment - a tendency to worry about rejection in relationships, feel overly needy and find that others are reluctant to get close - was associated with a wide range of health problems, including heart-related diseases, such as stroke, heart attack and high blood pressure. Anxious attachment was also linked to a higher risk of chronic pain and ulcers.

These findings suggest that insecure attachment is a risk factor for a wide range of health problems, particularly heart disease.
