Joslin Study Links High Glutamate Levels in Brain with Depression, Low Cognitive Function.
A raised level of glutamate in the brain, is apparently linked to lower cognitive function and higher rates of depression in diabetics.
While the study was done on T1s, the findings apply to ALL diabetics, and if any treatments come of it, they would be beneficial for all types too, (according to the article).
This is hardly news to anyone whose been a diabetic for a few years, as most of us have had to deal with depression already. I just hope it leads to a better understanding of a safe effective treatment for it. Two more reasons to keep your blood sugar under control - avoiding depression and decline of mental function!
