Diabetes or Depression: Which Comes First

Since many of us understand the risk of co-morbidities (i.e., two diseases that commonly exist together), I think it makes a lot of sense to ask this question.  Dr. Gupta from CNN had an article earlier this week on his blog about a study that was recently out on the relationship between diabetes and depression.

  • Those that started with depression but no diabetes had a 42% higher risk of developing diabetes during a 3-year period.
  • Patients with type 2 diabetes but no symptoms of depression were 54% higher risk for depression during that same period.
