Obesity is a problem that is increasing worldwide, leading to an increased incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Along with cognitive tests that measured attention control, the study measured levels of both blood glucose and IL-6 in more than 800 adults. Genetically modifying mice to make their brains resistant to insulin, the Joslin scientists first found that the animals exhibited behaviors that suggest anxiety and depression, and then pinpointed a mechanism that lowers levels of the key neurotransmitter dopamine in areas of the brain associated with those conditions. Studies have found that patients with DM have elevated levels of anxiety and depression, and decreased levels of well-being. The intervention alleviated depression, and improved eating patterns and scores on cognitive, anthropometric and biochemical measures. I understand that he should be getting injections twice a day. Prefrontal cortex (PFC), blood leptin levels and PFC neuron numbers were decreased, and leptin receptor expression and apoptosis were increased in diabetic rats.
By comparison, incident cardiovascular events were predicted by DSM-IV/5 major depression (2.10 (1.22–3.62)) only and cardiovascular mortality was predicted by both DSM-IV/5 major depression (3.56 (1.03–12.35)) and GAD (5.92 (1.84–19.08)). Led by Ragnhild Bjarkøy Strandberg, a study published in the September 2014 issue of Journal of Psychosomatic Research sought to determine if there was a relationship between the emotional distress revolving around diabetes and levels of hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c). Participants were recruited from two metropolitan regions and one rural region in Victoria through general practitioner referral, opportunistic community screening and self-referral (details reported previously21). What has that done to my baby? My advice after living on a roller coaster is to see an endocrinologist.
