Authors: Honda H, Hanayama Y, Obika M, Hasegawa K, Hamahara J, Kishida M, Hagiya H, Ogawa H, Kataoka H, Otsuka F Abstract A relationship between diabetes and depression is apparent. To clarify the clinical relevance of diabetic patients' gastroesophageal symptoms to their psychological status, we retrospectively analyzed the data from a Selfrating Depression Scale (SDS) and a Frequency Scale for Symptoms of Gastroesophageal reflux disease (FSSG) among 143 type 2 diabetic patients who visited a general medicine department.
