Depression severity linked to chronic diabetes complications among older patients

February 9, 2016

Older adults with diabetes were more likely to report moderate or severe depression when living with chronic complications, including retinopathy, neuropathy and end-stage renal disease requiring dialysis, according to recent findings.

“The more severe depressive symptoms there were, the greater the tendency we observed for diabetic microangiopathies and macroangiopathies,” Kaya Ishizawa, MD, PhD, of the Diabetes Center at Tokyo Women’s Medical University School of Medicine, and colleagues wrote. “Odds ratios for diabetic complications, except for gangrene, significantly increased with [Patient Health Questionnaire-9] scores.”
