Diabetes in psychiatric disease

Diabetes in psychiatric disease
Diabetes in psychiatric disease

The interactions between diabetes mellitus and psychiatric diseases are complex, with diabetes increasing the risk of a number of psychiatric disorders, while mental illness and its treatment affect the risks and outcomes of diabetes. The mechanisms underlying the association include genetic, lifestyle and psychological factors as well as biological and treatment effects. Where co-morbidity occurs, it presents a significant clinical challenge for clinicians and worsens the outcomes of both conditions for patients. Diabetes healthcare professionals need heightened awareness of the possibility of mental health problems, and knowledge of screening for and treatment of these disorders. Similarly, mental health professionals should be aware of how to screen for and prevent diabetes while understanding the care pathways for those who develop diabetes.

Abstract

The interactions between diabetes mellitus and psychiatric diseases are complex, with diabetes increasing the risk of a number of psychiatric disorders, while mental illness and its treatment affect the risks and outcomes of diabetes. The mechanisms underlying the association include genetic, lifestyle and psychological factors as well as biological and treatment effects. Where co-morbidity occurs, it presents a significant clinical challenge for clinicians and worsens the outcomes of both conditions for patients. Diabetes healthcare professionals need heightened awareness of the possibility of mental health problems, and knowledge of screening for and treatment of these disorders. Similarly, mental health professionals should be aware of how to screen for and prevent diabetes while understanding the care pathways for those who develop diabetes.
