Washington: A new study has shown that diabetics, who are depressed, are at an elevated risk of developing severe diabetes-related complications such as kidney failure, blindness, heart attack and stroke.
They also had higher levels of a substance in the blood formed when the sugar glucose attaches to hemoglobin, an oxygen-carrying protein. The major depression group had a higher proportion of women and smokers. However, after controlling for these differences between depressed and non-depressed patients with diabetes, the increased risk of complications associated with depression remained. The study appears in Diabetes Care, a scientific journal of the American Diabetes Association. ANI
