Medication adherence lapses with depressive symptoms in adolescents with type 2 diabetes

June 29, 2016

Type 2 diabetes medication adherence does not appear to be affected by sex, age, family income, parental education or treatment group, but lower medication adherence was found among youths with type 2 diabetes and depressive symptoms, according to researchers.

Kathryn Hirst, PhD, research professor in the department of epidemiology and biostatistics at George Washington University Biostatistics Center in Rockville, Maryland, and colleagues evaluated data from the TODAY trial on 699 children aged 10 to 17 years with recent-onset type 2 diabetes assigned to one of three treatment groups: metformin alone, metformin plus rosiglitazone or metformin plus an intensive lifestyle program.
