Depression + diabetes = increased risk of death
Deana Ferreri, Ph.D.

Depression is a growing problem in our society, and diabetes has reached epidemic proportions.
Major depressive disorder affects nearly 15 million American adults – that’s almost 7% of the adult population,
and it is the leading cause of disability in the U.S. for individuals aged 15-44. [1] Type 2 diabetes ( affects almost 10% of Americans, about 24 million people, and is the 7th leading cause of death in the U.S. [2]
In women, it has been shown that those with depression ( are more likely to develop diabetes, and those with diabetes are more likely to develop clinical depression.[3] Diabetes doubles the risk of heart attack ( and stroke, and depression is also an independent risk factor for heart disease, increasing risk by 64%. [2, 4] A new study has found that the coexistence of depression and diabetes imposes additive detrimental effects, especially with regard to death from cardiovascular disease. As a part of the Nurses’ Health Study, 78,000 women were followed for 6 years, and diagnoses of depression and type 2 diabetes were recorded.

Compared to subjects with neither diabetes nor depression:
• Depression alone increased risk of all-cause mortality by 53%, and cardiovascular mortality by 56%
• Diabetes alone increased risk of all-cause mortality by 52%, and cardiovascular mortality by 146%
• The risk of death from all causes climbed in those with both conditions to more than double, and risk of cardiovascular mortality almost quadruple that of individuals with neither condition.
• Those who had lived with diabetes for more than ten years combined with depression more than tripled their risk of death from cardiovascular disease.
• Depressed individuals who were also on insulin therapy had almost 5 times the risk of death from cardiovascular disease.[5, 6]
This is a reminder not only of the substantial health hazards associated with diabetes, but also the significance of the mind-body connection – in this study, depression increased the risk of death from all causes by 53%. Psychological conditions profoundly affect physical health. The potential physiological effects of depression on the cardiovascular system include increased platelet aggregation and inflammation, sympathetic nervous system hyperactivity, and impaired endothelial function. [7] Living healthfully, with the right lifestyle and diet-style in conjunction with judicious use of supplements to assure comprehensive nutritional adequacy can go a long way to making sure you and your loved ones avoid both diabetes and depression.
No one needs to resign to becoming a victim of these common American conditions.

Even if you have or have had depression (, there are effective natural methods for getting well. Dr. Fuhrman uses a treatment regimen that includes morning light therapy and exercise combined with a high nutrient diet and supplementation with vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids for patients with depression. Type 2 diabetes is a disease of poor lifestyle choices. As such, health-promoting lifestyle habits – a plant-based diet and exercise – are established in the medical literature as effective treatments for diabetes. [8-13] Furthermore, Dr. Fuhrman’s high-nutrient, vegetable-based diet offers dramatic results as it unlocks the body’s enormous healing potential, enabling many people to completely reverse their diabetes. Living a healthy lifestyle allows you to take control of your own health – both physical and mental health.
