According to a recent research published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, people with diabetes and depression who take antidepressants had a decreased risk of mortality and major diabetic complications.

Diabetes patients are more prone to develop depression, which increases their chance of dying or developing diabetes complications such as heart and kidney disease, stroke, eye, and foot issues.

Due to stress, body weight fluctuations, and a lack of exercise, depression exacerbates diabetes problems.

People with depression and diabetes have poorer health outcomes than those with diabetes alone, and regular antidepressant treatment could lower their risk of complications

said Dr Shi-Heng Wang, study lead author from the China Medical University in Taichung, Taiwan.

People who adhere to their antidepressants have better diabetes outcomes and quality of life than those with poor adherence

said another study author Chi-Shin Wu.

To see if antidepressants may improve diabetes outcomes, the researchers conducted a countrywide retrospective cohort analysis of 36,276 individuals with depression and diabetes. They discovered that using antidepressants on a regular basis was linked to a decreased risk of mortality and heart disease.

Le-Yin Hsu of National Taiwan University in Taipei, Taiwan, and Yi-Jiun Pan of China Medical University in Taichung, Taiwan, are among the study’s other authors.

The Ministry of Science and Technology, the China Medical University, and the Ministry of Health and Welfare all contributed to the manuscript’s development.
