RE­MEM­BER TO LOOK AF­TER YOUR MEN­TAL HEALTH

Diabetic Living - - Welcome -

Peo­ple with di­a­betes are sig­nif­i­cantly more likely to die by sui­cide or al­co­hol-re­lated is­sues due to the psy­cho­log­i­cal im­pact man­ag­ing their con­di­tion has on their men­tal health. Find­ings from the Univer­sity of Helsinki – pub­lished in the Euro­pean Jour­nal of En­docrinol­ogy – found al­co­hol-re­lated deaths were up to 10 times greater in peo­ple with di­a­betes, while sui­cides were 110 per cent higher com­pared to the rest of the Fin­nish pop­u­la­tion.
