DEPRESSION AND DIABETES

A few weeks ago I reported on a survey that said depression leads to bone loss. Now, studies are showing that diabetes can lead to depression.

The Archives of Internal Medicine published a study yesterday, reflecting that “Among well-functioning older adults, Diabetes is associated with increased risk of depressive symptoms.” Hmm. Well I could see where losing a leg, or a limb due to diabetes would be depressing – but the study reflected even “well-functioning” adults experienced depressive symptoms.

What an interesting study.
