Treating Diabetes, Depression Together May Make SenseFEBRUARY 1, 2012
HealthDay reports that patients with depression and type 2 diabetes showed more improvement when they received simultaneous treatment for both conditions, researchers report.
"Our results demonstrate that integrated treatment for both conditions, combined with a brief program focused on adherence for primary care patients with type 2 diabetes and depression can result in a significant improvement in clinical outcomes. We hope the findings will encourage the adoption of adherence programs aimed at improving outcomes," said Hillary Bogner, MD, MSCE, an assistant professor of Family Medicine and Community Health in the Perelman School of Medicine.
