Does living with diabetes cause an increased prevalence of depression? Recent studies on the prevalence of depression in adults and adolescents with diabetes suggest that this may be the case. In a study published in Diabetes Care (December, 1993), the prevalence of psychiatric disorders among adolescents with diabetes was found to be 33.3% higher than in the non-diabetic control group, and that adolescents with diabetes in the study suffered from "significantly more introversive symptoms,...especially somatic symptoms, sleeping disturbances, compulsions, and depressive moods."

Researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine have discovered that people with diabetes are at higher risk of depression than the general population (Diabetes Care, August '93 issue). Their findings indicate that people with diabetes are almost three times as likely to develop mild clinical depression (more than 14%) than people without diabetes (around 4%). Unlike other chronic diseases (including arthritis, heart disease, chronic lung disease, and hypertension), diabetes appears to be a risk factor for depression only, not for other psychological disorders. According to the study, women with diabetes are more likely to suffer from clinical depression than their male counterparts, as are people of low economic status.
