Depression rates increasing among young adults with type 2 diabetes in US and UK – Healio

The proportion of people with type 2 diabetes diagnosed with depression in the U.S. and U.K. increased from 2006 to 2017, particularly among those diagnosed with diabetes at a younger age, according to a study published in Diabetologia.

“About one-third of people have prevalent depression at the time of diagnosis of diabetes, and the trend of this prevalence has been significantly increasing in U.S. and U.K., similar across all age groups at diagnosis of type 2 diabetes,” Sanjoy Ketan Paul, MS, PhD, professor of clinical epidemiology and biostatistics at the University of Melbourne in Australia, told Healio. “Young people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes younger than 40 years have a significantly higher risk of developing depression by about 20% to 55% compared with those who developed type 2 diabetes at age 50 years or older, the risk being similar irrespective of cardiometabolic comorbidities at type 2 diabetes diagnosis.”
