In brief: The short answer is
Significantly, unless you deal early and quickly with depression.
Many things can happen to your body when depression runs unchecked. Hypertension, diabetes and other genetic predispositions can show up under the stress of depression it's also true that those predispositions can be kept dormant by limiting as much stress as you can from your daily life. That means treating your depression early.
