Type 1s More Likely to Worry and Be Depressed


By: Daniel Trecroci

U.K researchers say there is an increased prevalence of clinically relevant anxiety in females and of depression in males with type 1.

A large group of people with type 1 diabetes living in the United Kingdom was invited to complete questionnaires when they attended outpatient clinic appointments.

Women were more anxious and men were more depressed than people without type 1 diabetes.
