Severe Hypoglycemia, Severity of Depressive Symptoms in T2 Patients Linked

From the results of a cross-sectional study, it was revealed that severe hypoglycemia was positively associated with the severity of depressive symptoms in Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes independent of glycemic control, insulin therapy, lifestyle factors and diabetic complications. “Since severe hypoglycemia and depression are known risk factors for morbidity and mortality in patients with diabetes, clinicians should be aware of this combination in clinical settings.” — Masanori Iwase, BMJ Open Research & Diabetes Care, July 2015
