Can diabetes make you depressed?

Several studies have implied that diabetes doubles the risk of depression compared to those who do not have the disorder. The chances of becoming depressed increases as diabetes related complications increase. It has been proved that when depressed, the patient is not motivated enough to take care of himself, eat healthy or take medicines regularly. This adversely affects the diabetes management plan.

Can diabetes lead to mental illness?

Depressed people indulge in unhealthy eating practices- eating the wrong kinds of food or eating wrong quantities of food. They may feel isolated, different and alone, get overwhelmed with their diabetes and therefore get further depressed. On the flip side, depressed people may get so preoccupied with their own illness that they will increase time, energy and inclination to manage their diabetes.

What is a diabetic burn out?

As you can see, this is a vicious cycle which definitely requires medical intervention. One will need to consult the doctor and a psychiatrist, who can together chart out the intervention program. This multi-pronged attack will take into account the medicines one can have which will not affect blood sugar levels, as well as propose a healthy food regime.

Working on both fronts is the only way to go about things, thereby effectively handling diabetes as well as depression. Most important, one may have to make drastic lifestyle changes, because stress is one of the main underlying factors common to both diseases.
