Bad News for Diabetes and Depression
This isn’t a super positive story, but it’s one that should be told, as it affects a lot of people. New evidence has surfaced showing that people who have both diabetes and depression are at an increased risk of heart attack.
That depression would be of the untreated kind, which is where this story’s central point lies. If you believe you suffer from depression, get it checked out. It doesn’t mean you have to start a course of antidepressants (in fact, this should be the absolute last resort); it just means that depression is acknowledged and treatment steps can be taken.
