- •Depression and diabetes distress (DD) have been linked to worse glycemic control..
- •Prevalence of depression and DD can be difficult to estimate.
- •There is limited data on whether they are associated with diabetes complications.
- •In this study, neither depression nor DD correlated with glycemic control.
- •Those with depression were more likely to have diabetes-related complications.
We aimed to identify the prevalence of comorbid depression, diabetes, and diabetes distress and assess glycemic control and rates of diabetes-related complications. While the presence of either depression or distress did not predict the level of glycemic control, certain macro- and microvascular complications were more prevalent with depression.
Abbreviations:DD (diabetes distress), DDS (Diabetes Distress Scale)
