PHQ-9 and PSQ-20 scores of anorexic patients with low <i>versus</i> high anxiety.

<p>Patients with high anxiety scores displayed higher total scores in PHQ-9 (A) and PSQ-20 (B). Similarly, the PSQ-20 subscales differed between the two groups with higher scores for “worries” (C), “tension” (D) and “demands” (E) and lower scores for “joy” (F) in the high <i>versus</i> low anxiety group. Differences between groups were calculated using t-tests. Data are expressed as mean ± standard deviation. *** <i>p</i> < 0.001. Abbreviations: PHQ-9, patient health questionnaire; PSQ-20, perceived stress questionnaire.</p>
