Does treating depression improve glycemic control in persons with diabetes?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
In patients with diabetes and comorbid depression, treatment of depression can improve glycemic control. Psychosocial interventions for depression alone can improve diabetes control, although the effect is small. Antidepressant pharmacotherapy alone does not appear to be sufficient. It is unclear if one psychosocial intervention is more beneficial than another. (SOR: B, based on heterogeneous meta-analyses.)
