The Diabetes-Depression Connection

MD - Diabetology, MBBS

The Diabetes-Depression Connection

According to most experts, Depression and Diabetes have been intricately connected in a vicious cycle. While the prolonged and sustaining nature of diabetes directly makes one vulnerable to the bouts of depression, doctors tend to locate traces of depression in the family history of an individual in order to diagnose the roots of diabetes. It won't be too far-fetched to state that both causes as well as affects the other.

If you have diabetes, either type 1 or type 2, you have an increased risk of developing depression. And if you're depressed, you may have a greater chance of developing type 2 diabetes. The good news is that diabetes and depression can be treated together. And effectively managing one can have a positive effect on the other.

How Diabetes and Depression Correlated?                    
There are myriad ways in which diabetes affects depression and vice versa.

Firstly, tackling such a long drawn disease and its various pitfalls might cause a lot of anxiety to one and lead to depression. Whereas on the other hand, depression reduces the zeal to live and thus results in poor lifestyle choices which in turn causes weight gain, unhealthy food habits, physical inactivity. As we are well aware, all these have the potential to wreak havoc for any patient of diabetes. 

Similarly, diabetes ushers in various other health complications, adversely impacting one's productivity. This may cause depression in a lot of people. 

On the flipside, depression impedes one's ability and enthusiasm to work or communicate, this in turn intervenes with one's monitoring of diabetes. Since these two extremely malevolent diseases have such close connections, medical science recommends ways to grapple with both. The rigors of managing diabetes can be stressful and lead to symptoms of depression.

Diabetes can cause complications and health problems that may worsen symptoms of depression.

Depression affects your ability to perform tasks, communicate and think clearly. This can interfere with your ability to successfully manage diabetes.

Treatment: Depression is just like any other illness, it can be treated. Treatment can lift the depression and improve diabetes control.

Looking after your diabetes will help decrease the risk of getting depression. If you already have depression, good diabetes management will help lessen the negative impacts it can have. Depression is no different to any of the other complication of diabetes. It is a genuine illness for which you need to seek help and support from health professionals.

The treatment for depression and diabetes involves a coordinated approach that monitors both diabetes control and the symptoms of depression. It is about finding the treatment that works best for each person. For example, people with diabetes and mild depression may find that regular physical activity improves depressed moods and also helps control blood glucose levels.

Helping Yourself.

If you suspect you might have depression, take control of your health by:

  • Going to a doctor or other health professional
  • Getting involved in social activities
  • Engaging in regular moderate physical activity
  • Learning about depression and diabetes
  • Very particular about medicines prescribed for Diabetes
  • Eating healthily and including a wide variety of nutritious foods
  • Achieving and maintaining healthy weight
  • Limiting your alcohol intake
  • Getting help, support and encouragement from family and friends
  • Asking your doctor to check your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose levels If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Mr. lybrate-user, Looking at your height and weight, it is clear that you have grade 3 obesity with a BMI of 40.83 kgs/M2. This itself is the cause for knee pain. If hypothyroidism is well in control then TSH will be around 3 to 4 mU/L. Since there is no mention about either TSH value or dosage of thyroxine, it is difficult to comment. If you make a serious effort to reduce weight, most of your problems will be in check including knee pain. Thanks.

Random blood sugar below 140 means you are in perfect health. So no need to worry. You can try to reduce high Carbs from your diet and instead take complex carbohydrates. You can refer to something called Glycemic Index ( G.I. Index) of foods for selecting and managing your diet.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thyroid is the normal gland present is all of us, producing hormones T3 & T4 (thyroxine), which are essential for brain development, daily functioning of it and various metabolic functions in the body. Deficiency of thyroid function causes hypothyroidism - leading to weight gain, cold intolerance, slow heart rate, pain in joints and muscles, swelling of face, legs, dry skin, dry hair. Hair fall, anxiety and depression. In females it can lead to infertility, irregular menstruation etc. It can be treated by taking adequate dose of thyroxine hormone. Thanks.

Diabetes - How it Affects Your Skin?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Diabetes - How it Affects Your Skin?

Diabetes is a serious disease, but if properly managed is not life threatening. Diabetes can be explained as the body’s inability to regulate insulin production. This leads to fluctuations in blood sugar levels. This disease affects every part of the body including the skin. For some people, a rash is among the first few symptoms of diabetes. Most diabetic patients suffer from a skin condition at some point or the other. Here are a few common skin ailments that affect diabetic patients.

  1. Bacterial infections: A weakened immune system makes diabetics more vulnerable to bacterial infections than normal. These bacterial infections can be typically seen in the form of styles on the eyelid, boils, carbuncles and nail infections. They usually make the skin around the infected area red, inflamed and painful. Most skin bacterial skin ailments can be treated with antibiotic creams and pills.
  2. Fungal infections: One of the most common fungal infections that diabetic patients suffer from is known as Candida albicans. This ailment is characterised by a red, itchy rash that is surrounded by small blisters. It is caused by yeast-like fungus and usually found in moist areas like the armpits or between the toes. Other fungal infections that affect diabetic patients include ringworm, jock itch, athlete’s foot and vaginal yeast infections.
  3. Itchy skin: Diabetics often suffer from itchiness that could be triggered by yeast infections, dry skin and poor circulation. People with poor circulation will find their calves and feet to be the itchiest part of the body, While poor circulation and yeast infections may need medical attention, dry skin can be easily treated by keeping the skin internally and externally hydrated along with the use of a mild moisturising soap.
  4. Vitiligo: This is a skin condition where the melanin producing cells in the skin are destroyed. This leads to a patchy appearance that can be typically seen on the hands, face and chest. Vitiligo is considered to be an autoimmune disease like diabetes and has no known cause or cure. Sunscreen is a must for diabetic patients suffering from vitiligo as the unpigmented skin has no protection from UV radiation.
  5. Diabetic blisters: Patients with severe diabetes may also suffer from diabetic blisters. These blisters usually occur on the extremities of the body and resemble blisters caused by burns. They are usually pain-free and heal on their own.
  6. Disseminated granuloma annular: This condition is characterised by a ring or arc shaped areas on the skin. They can usually be seen on the fingers and ears but may also occur in the chest and abdomen. This rash may be reddish or skin coloured. Medical treatment is not generally required for this condition.

Blood Sugar/ Diabetes is not caused only by sugar but by Excessive Carbohydrates. You need to control/reduce intake of all forms of Carbohydrates like White Rice, White Bread, Maida, Noodles, Buns, Pizzas, Samosas, Potatoes, Bananas, Mangoes etc. ---- Also cut down Colas, Juices, Sweet Tea, Sweets, Cakes, Biscuits etc. Your weight is also a little high and you need to reduce about 5 kgs from your weight and the Sugar will also get controlled that way. Avoid taking Panto medicine on a regular basis. Try to drink more water and eat less fried / spicy stuff. Right now you are on the borderline. Take proper precautions. Get your sugar test done everymonth. Do proper exercise and you will be fine.

Hi FBS of 114 is normal. PP of 88 is low.Fasting blood sugars always depend on what you eat the previous night. Have an early dinner. Do not eat high calorie food. Have a cup of milk with some protein powder at bedtime. Apart from this medication dose adjustment is needed.

Hi Apple cider vinegar has lot of good effects on the body. It reduces weight, lowers cholesterol thereby reducing risk of heart disease and also has glucose lowering effect hence reduces blood sugar. 2 tsps of apple cider vinegar at bedtime reduces fasting blood sugar. Watch for low blood sugars.

Dear lybrate-user need to know some basics. How is your status of sugar. If its fluctuating/ you suffering from hypoglycemia in between then fasting not good for u.if you r perfectly fine then you must fast once a month in which you shud take only warm water and rice flakes. This type of Langhan is very good for diabetics. please consult me in person on Lybrate for details.

Dear Lybrateuser, - To bring down your fasting level sugar decrease carbohydrates & increase protein & healthy fats in your dinner - do regular exercise like brisk walking for 30-40 min, also do yoga for 5-10 min daily in the morning, also take a 10 min walk after dinner for better digestion & control of sugar - sleep well for 7-8 hours in the night.
