Depression And Diabetes

Diabetes is a disease of the endocrine system. Both type one and type 2 diabetes can be controlled by monitoring and controlling sugar level. When this is achieved, patients can live a normal life. The process of monitoring & controlling blood sugar may be overwhelming for some. This may contribute to depression. In addition, being depressed may cause one to be sedentary, with no interest in exercise or other regular activities. This type of lifestyle could lead to development of type 2 diabetes. Thus the two conditions (depression and diabetes) have some connection. Seeing a health/mental health professional can help patients overcome these scenarios and prevent futher complications on their health.
