Depression May Increase Risk Of Premature Death In Individuals With Type 1 Diabetes.

The Pittsburgh Business Times (6/16, Subscription Publication) reports that research suggests that individuals “with Type 1 diabetes have a higher risk of premature death as their symptoms of depression increase.” For each “one point increase on a 32-point depression measurement scale, study participants showed a 4 percent increase in risk for mortality, even after controlling for such things as age, gender, smoking and cholesterol, lead author Cassie Fickley said.”
