No results were provided for diabetics who were depressed and not depressed in terms of the outcome.The study authors concluded that ‘Type 1 diabetic participants reporting the prevalence of at least one diabetic complication scored higher on the BDI-II depression scale than participants without complications’.
Pearson et al262/26 diabetic patients with no depression had an amputation compared with 3/28 diabetic patients with depression.Data were missing for six participants (three had died, three were lost to follow-up). ‘There was no significant difference between the two groups in terms of outcome’.
