Health Equity: Social Disparities Related to Stress Response and Health

The stress response, or “fight or flight” response is the emergency reaction system of the body. It has evolved to help us react quickly to life-threatening situations. Adrenaline and cortisol is released, increasing our heart rate, elevating blood pressure and increasing glucose in the bloodstream. For many of us our stress response is usually self-limiting. But when stressors are ever present in our life the “fight or flight” reaction stays turned on.

Some people in our community are constantly operating at high levels of stress, continually triggering the “fight or flight” stress response, not because they are being suddenly threatened, but because they cannot meet their basic needs. People with social disparities such as low income, housing instability, food insecurity, limited transportation, discrimination and violence consistently have higher levels of cortisol in their bodies. Sustained higher levels of cortisol stimulates hypertension, cardiovascular disease, glucose intolerances, insulin resistance, inflammation, decreases immune responses and causes atrophy and cell death in critical parts of our brains.

Anthony Iton, MD from Johns Hopkins in Baltimore states, “Low income and wealthy people in this country are physiologically different.”2

It is important for us in health care to understand the underlying causes of the conditions we see daily, and what social factors are contributing to disease. Understanding how our patients live and what social factors play a part in their health can help us provide better treatment for better community outcomes.
