    What is Seasonal Affective Disorder?
    Some people suffer from symptoms of depression during the winter months, with symptoms subsiding during the spring and summer months. This may be a sign of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). SAD is a mood disorder associated with depression episodes and related to seasonal variations of light.
    fact sheet index
    Symptoms Include:
    • regularly occurring symptoms of depression (excessive eating and sleeping, weight gain) during the fall or winter months. a craving for sugary and/or starchy foods.
    Possible Cause of this Disorder
    Melatonin, a sleep-related hormone secreted by the pineal gland in the brain, has been linked to SAD. This hormone, which may cause symptoms of depression, is produced at increased levels in the dark. Therefore, when the days are shorter and darker the production of this hormone increases. Treatments

Current Opinion in Psychiatry, January 1994
Raymond W. Lam, M.D.
Recent research on seasonal affective disorder (SAD) has refined the diagnostic criteria and highlighted the heterogeneous nature of the disorder. Recent light therapy studies show improved methodology, but some negative studies add to the controversy over non-specific (placebo) effects of light exposure. Several psychobiologic studies generated interesting data, but the pathophysiology of SAD remains elusive and unconfirmed. to top
The decade since the publication of Rosenthal et al's 1984 paper [1] defining seasonal affective disorder (SAD) has seen remarkable research interest into the seasonality of mood disorders and treatment with bright light. For example, Medline has included a separate Medical Subject Heading (MeSH) for seasonal affective disorder, and over 100 articles have been indexed since-1991 alone. In the past year, publications have focused on the diagnosis, symptomatology, epidemiology, and light therapy of SAD. to top
Symptoms And Diagnosis
The validity of SAD as a diagnosis has received attention because of the impending publication of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th edition (DSM-IV) [2,3*]. Draft diagnostic criteria for seasonal pattern (Table 1) were revised according to empiric data and consensus in the field [4*]. SAD continues to be classified as a 'seasonal pattern' for unipolar and bipolar mood disorders, and is included as one of several 'course specifiers' of the major mood disorders (along with rapid cycling and post partum).

Recognizing Depression and Its Symptoms
Depression is one of the symptoms associated with a range of mood disorders including bipolar disorder, postpartum depression, and major depression. Many of these disorders also include other symptoms such as mania, anxiety, and, on the extreme end, psychosis. Because depression is often used casually to describe sadness, recognizing true symptoms of depression is difficult.

Our health, mood and behavior can be affected when the quality and quantity of sunlight is lessened. A direct consequence can be Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), winter depression, or sleep disorders. We at Alaska Northern Lights build but one light box - the North Star 10,000. Recommended by doctors for years, we have chosen to stay with what truly works. With no dimmers or gimmicks, our light box is simply and specifically designed for the brightness needed for light therapy.

It usually begins in late fall or early winter and goes away by summer. A less common type of SAD, known as summer depression, usually begins in the late spring or early summer. It goes away by winter. SAD may be related to changes in the amount of daylight during different times of the year. Return to top
