Depressive Symptoms and Family Functionality in the Elderly with Diabetes Mellitus.

Depressive Symptoms and Family Functionality in the Elderly with Diabetes Mellitus. Issues Ment Health Nurs. 2019 Sep 23;:1-5 Authors: Barreto Andrade DM, Montargil Rocha R, Santos Ribeiro IJ Abstract With the aging process, disease rates such as diabetes mellitus and depression increase. These factors, in turn, interfere in the family relationships and increase the risk of morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between depressive symptomatology and family functionality in the elderly with diabetes mellitus. This is a cross-sectional study, developed with 236 elderly people with diabetes in the interior of Bahia, Brazil. The Geriatric Depression Scale and the family APGAR were used as collection instruments and the Structural Equations Modeling was used as the analysis. The model presented adequate adjustment indices with RMSEA 0.05 [IC90% 0.020-0.085], TLI 0.931 and IFC 0.951. The study revealed an association between depressive symptomatology in elderly with diabetes and family dysfunction. Implications for actions and policy change are discussed.

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. Among the 45 Japanese patients enrolled, the group with relatively high SDS scores (≥ 36) s...

JHM Abstract Microvascular dysfunction (MVD) is a common pathophysiological change in various diseases, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), heart failure, dementia and depression. Recent technical advances enable the measurement and quantification of microvascular changes non-invasively in humans. In this paper, we describe the protocols of the microvascular measurements applied in The Maastricht Study, an ongoing prospective population-based cohort study, which includes a variety of non-invasive measurements in skin, retina, brain, and sublingual tissue as well as plasma and urine biomarker assessments. Foll...

In conclusion, the concept of an epigenetic clock is compelling, but caution should be taken in interpreting associations with age acceleration. Association tests of age acceleration should include age as a covariate.

Conclusion: The most commonly affected domains were usual activities (79%), pain (76.20%) and anxiety/depression (71.91%). Factors such as age (>65 yrs.), BMI (Underweight and Obese), educational background (Illiterate), Unemployment, domiciliary status (Rural), number of medications (>11) had significant association with EQ–5D index and VAS scores (p–0.000). It was found that QoL was impaired in stage 5D compared to other stages (p–0.000).

ConclusionPeru has a considerable burden of depression in the hypertensive and diabetic populations. While the variables positively associated with depression in hypertensive adults were female gender and harmful alcohol consumption, in adults with diabetes it was the presence of physical disability.

CONCLUSION: These findings suggest that personality traits do not have a large impact on glycemic control. Further studies are required to confirm the relationships between psychological factors and glycemic control using a longitudinal study design. PMID: 31995975 [PubMed]

CONCLUSIONS: Depression was associated with macrovascular complications and all-cause mortality in our patient cohort. However, the magnitude of association was less than that in previous studies. Further research should focus on the benefits and risks of treatment for depression on diabetes outcome. PMID: 31992379 [PubMed - in process]

In recent years, mediation analysis has become a popular means to identify and quantify pathways linking an exposure to an outcome, thereby elucidating how a particular exposure contributes to the occurrence of a specific outcome. When a mediator is a modifiable risk factor, this opens up new opportunities for interventions to block (part) of the exposure`s effect on the outcome. Recent examples in Scandinavian Journal of Work Environment Health have addressed the mediating effect of wellbeing on the association between type of office and job satisfaction (1) and examined whether workplace social capital contributes to the...
