Diabetes and Mental Health - Anger, Burnout, Compulsive Eating, and Depression

Published: 28 Nov 2017

World Diabetes Day (WDD) is celebrated annually on November 14 with the aim of increasing awareness of the effects of diabetes and the complications caused by the disease. The number of diabetics in the world stands at 415 million as of 2015. If the epidemic of ‘Diabetes’ were a country, it would come in at third place in terms of population, behind only China and India. However, the magnitude of this problem needs no explanation. Awareness of this disease is growing and steps are being taken to curb the problem by governments, academics, medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, payers, digital health stakeholders, industry associations and patient groups. However, while the focus is usually on the physical aspects of diabetes and its serious complications, there is less emphasis on the emotional burden and psychological distress that can come with the disease itself.
