Diabetes Self-Management Blog

Recently on The Diabetes Self-Management Blog, psychotherapist Joe Nelson wrote a blog entry about research that linked having depression to a higher risk of developing heart disease. On a related note, we’d like to direct your attention this week to this post at www.thediabetesblog.com entitled “Diabetes, Depression and Heart Disease—A Dangerous Mix.” It discusses another recent study that has shown an increased risk of dying in people who have Type 2 diabetes, depression, and heart disease. This blog entry is written by health writer Chris Sparling.

You can also read more about the study in this story on the American Diabetes Association’s Web site.
