Diabetes And Depression

Tweet According to NICE, people who are diagnosed with a chronic physical health problem such as diabetes are 3 times more likely to be diagnosed with depression than people without it.

Depression is the most common psychiatric disorder witnessed in the diabetes community.

    How do I get this beast off my back. I can't live like this. I can't deal with this. I can't even control it. My A1C just keeps going up and up no matter how much I try to keep tight control or exercise or starve myself. Not even trying to match insulin does any good. No one will tell me how to get rid of this. I just want my freedom back.

    You can't get rid of diabetes, but you can take control. Try going onto low carb. Read Richard Bernstein and follow his "doctrine of small numbers". Low carb andlow insulin doses lead to fewer fluctuations in BG and feeling better. If you let it control you, you will not win and that's unthinkable. Read this forum ; ask for help as often as you feel the need and it will be there for you
