In the June 18 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, it was reported that patients with type 2 diabetes were more likely to develop depression and also that patients with depression were more likely to develop type 2 diabetes.
Researchers concluded that the studies support a "bidirectional association" between depression and type 2 diabetes, in which each contributes to or exacerbates the other.
The study that produced this conclusion was a longitudinal cohort study in which 6,814 people underwent a comprehensive health and lifestyle assessment from 2000 to 2002, and were then followed until 2004 and 2005.
In one analysis, the researchers selected 5,201 persons without diagnosed type 2 diabetes at baseline, and grouped them according to the presence or absence of depressive symptoms. The subsequent development of type 2 diabetes was determined for each group.
The other study, involving 4,847 participants, was structured similarly but focused on development of depression among patients without depressive symptoms at baseline, stratified by type 2 diabetes diagnosis.
Finally the researchers stated that: "Future studies should determine whether interventions aimed at modifying behavioral factors associated with depression will complement current type 2 diabetes prevention strategies."
I wonder if they should spend lots of time discovering the obvious? And I wonder if they'll ever realize that hypnosis can be a positive and powerful contribution to helping depressed and/or diabetes persons change their lives for the better?
I have written several articles citing very compelling evidence that anyone with diabetes or depression needs to see. Or, if you know someone with either condition, they need to understand that there is a way to change their lives without harmful side-effects.
Following is a partial list of articles I have written that contain life changing information:
"Knowledge is Power" or so goes the saying.
Actually, it should be "Knowledge combined with action is Power".
Hypnosis really can help motivate people toward greater health.
Thank you for taking time to read this article.
