A study done at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2008 showed that the risk of type 2 diabetes increases as the symptoms of depression increase. 





Diabetes and Depression Link
This link between Diabetes and Depression has been linked to several factors such us:

  • people who are depressed are less likely to exercise and more likely to consume excess calories which leads to obesity which is a risk factor for diabetes. 
  • a diagnosis of diabetes may lead to depression as the patient thinks of all the diabetic complications and other factors of diabetes.
  • patients who are depressed are also less likely to take their diabetes and depression medications and any other medications they may be on leading to poorly controlled diabetes and the development of diabetic complications
