Mental health symptoms and patient-reported diabetes symptom burden: implications for medication regimen changes.
The aim of this paper was to examine the relative contribution of glycaemic control (HbA1C) and depressive symptoms on diabetes-related symptom burden (hypoglycaemia and hyperglycaemia) in order to guide medication modification. The authors found that mental health symptoms are associated with higher levels of patient-reported diabetes-related symptoms, but the association between diabetes-related symptoms and subsequent regimen modifications is diminished in patients with greater depressive symptoms.
