Diabetics More Likely To Suffer From Depression
Nov 1, 1993 | 
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.
