Discussion We designed this cross-sectional study to evaluate the relationship between dietary patterns and schizophrenia in Japan. A previous study demonstrated a relationship between fatty acids and schizophrenia. Previous studies have demonstrated a relationship between polyunsaturated fatty acids and the pathogenesis of schizophrenia. The daily calories intake between patients with schizophrenia and control patients was similar; however, individuals with schizophrenia consumed significantly greater amounts of sugar and fat.
This confusion has largely resulted from the common use of some of these names in popular media, and as short-hand by people referring to someone who is grappling with a mental health issue.
The disorders, however, have little in common other than the fact that many who have them are still stigmatized by society.
Bipolar Disorder Bipolar disorder is a fairly common mental disorder compared with the other two disorders. Bipolar disorder is also well-understood and readily treated by a combination of medications and psychotherapy.
It is characterized by alternating moods of mania and depression, both of which usually last weeks or even months in most people who have the disorder. People who are manic have a high energy level and often irrational beliefs about the amount of work they can accomplish in a short amount of time.
They sometimes take on a million different projects at once and finish none of them. Some people with mania talk at a faster rate and seem to the people around them to be constantly in motion.
Problems with sleep occur during both types of mood.
Bipolar disorder can be challenging to treat because, while a person will take an antidepressant medication to help alleviate a depressed mood, they are less likely to remain on the medications which help rein in the manic mood. So many people with bipolar disorder find it difficult to maintain treatment while in their manic phase.

People who have delusions will continue with their delusions even when shown evidence that contradicts the delusion. Such treatment usually involves medications and psychotherapy, but can also involve a day program for people who have more severe or treatment-resistant forms of the disorder.
Because of the nature of the symptoms of schizophrenia, people with this disorder often find it difficult to interact with others, and conduct normal life activities, such as holding down a job. Many people with schizophrenia go off of treatment sometimes, for instance, because a hallucination may tell them to do soand end up homeless.
