Lifestyle interventions improve depression scores in diabetes

May 5, 2016

Adults with type 2 diabetes saw reduced depression scores after completing a variety of lifestyle interventions, according to a recent meta-analysis.

“Among short-, intermediate- and longer-term intervention durations, it was evident, upon meta-analysis, that all durations were useful in reducing depression scores,” Adriana Cezaretto, PhD, of the department of epidemiology at the School of Public Health, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and colleagues wrote. “Furthermore, when the frequency of interventions was considered, substantial depression score improvement was found within the weekly frequency subset. These findings further validate previous studies that demonstrate providing increased attention to individuals with chronic diseases could result in a greater sense of care and in turn improvements in depression outcomes.”
