Depression Worsens Outcome in Diabetes, Study Finds

July 2001
Ascribe Newswire: Medicine;7/24/2001, p8
A new analysis of 27 studies that links depression to various diabetes complications suggested that a diabetic person's emotional state may affect the progression of complications of the disease. Previous studies have shown that depression has an impact on the ability of a person with diabetes to control blood sugar, while other studies show that poor control of blood sugar levels leads to more severe complications. This analysis bridges the gap, showing that the relationship between depression and diabetes complications is both significant and consistent.
