ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the prevalence of depressive symptoms and the relationship between depressive symptoms and metabolic control related to diabetes. Researchers conducted a cross-sectional study of 183 African-American adults aged 35-75 years with type 2 diabetes who were recruited from two primary care clinics in East Baltimore, Maryland. The main implication of this study is that depression may be an important contributor to suboptimal metabolic control in African-Americans with type 2 diabetes.
