• Fatigue, frequently tired or have that foggy feeling
• Difficulty maintaining a healthy weight
• Broken sleep having to urinate too often
• Vision changes such as floaters, blurred vision, dark or empty spots

Diabetes and Depression

Depression and Diabetes Do Not Have to Go Hand-in-Hand

People with diabetes are 2 to 3 times more likely to have depression than people without diabetes. Unfortunately, only 25% to 50% of diabetes patients who have depression get diagnosed and treated.[1]
