Diabetes in Special Populations

  • Ronald A. Codario
Part of the Current Clinical Practice book series (CCP)


Major depressive disorders and depressive symptoms not only occur frequently with diabetes, but in many patients, mental health symptoms and even depression go unrecognized or incorrectly diagnosed [1]. Even among those that undergo successful treatment, close to 80% will experience relapsing symptoms within 5 years. Diabetic patients at higher risk for depression include those of female gender, poor social support system, lower education, low socioeconomic status, and unmarried status. Clinical research has revealed that having type-2 diabetes increases the risk of depression and depression is an independent risk and predictive factor for the quantity and severity of type-2 diabetes complications. Depression early in life also increases the risk for unhealthy lifestyle, obesity, sedentary existence, and addictive habits – especially smoking. In addition, patients with depression and type-2 diabetes are far more likely to be non-compliant with medications, glucose self monitoring, and therapeutic life style changes [1].
