People with diabetes are more than twice as likely as others to have depression.
A study published by the National Institutes of Health found a variety of factors, including the physical impact of diabetes on immunology and endocrine pathways to the brain, plus the psychological and psychosocial impact of having diabetes.
It’s an important connection to watch, because depression is associated with poor disease control, poor health, and diminished quality of life.
