Depression and diabetes

Depression is common among people with diabetes and can contribute to people not taking medicines, not following prescribed diets and an overall reduction in the quality of life for people with the condition. A five-year study of depression among primary-care patients in New York, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh found that depressed people with diabetes who received more resources for depression were half as likely to die over the course of the study than those who had recieved no help for their depression.
