Studies show that people with diabetes have a greater risk of depression than people without diabetes. The stress of daily diabetes management can build. You may feel alone or set apart from your friends and family because of all this extra work.
If you face diabetes complications such as nerve damage, or if you are having trouble keeping your blood sugar levels where you would like, you may feel like you are losing control of your diabetes. Just like denial, depression can get you into a vicious cycle. It can block good diabetes self-care.
