Depression with diabetes may speed mental decline

Researchers determined whether an individual was depressed using a 9-question form patients filled out themselves. More than 2,600 people completed the tests at all three time points. Sixty-two percent of these never had scores indicating depression. Eighteen percent were depressed at the start of the study, 16 to 17 percent were depressed at 20 and 40 months and five percent had scores indicating depression at all three time points. Researchers found that people with symptoms of depression at any point were more likely to be women, younger, non-Hispanic whites, overweight or obese, and to have higher blood sugar, total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein, or “bad” cholesterol, than others.

Weight loss occurs because muscle and fat stores are depleted since the cells cannot utilize energy or glucose the normal way.
