OBJECTIVE Depression is associated with the onset of type 2 diabetes. A systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies, controlled trials, and unpublished data was conducted to examine the association between depression and insulin resistance (IR). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Medline, EMBASE, and PsycINFO were searched for studies published up to September 2011. Two independent reviewers assessed the eligibility of each report based on predefined inclusion criteria (study design… 

Figures from this paper

The association between insulin therapy and depression in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus: a meta-analysis
TLDR
A meta-analysis confirmed that patients on insulin therapy were significantly associated with the risk of depressive symptoms, and was associated with an odds for developing depression.
Association of depression with pre-diabetes, undiagnosed diabetes, and previously diagnosed diabetes: a meta-analysis
TLDR
It is suggested that risk of prevalent depression was gradually increased with the deterioration of glucose metabolism among younger age groups but not among older age groups, and comorbid cardiovascular diseases might be an important intermediate factor underlying the association between depression and diabetes.
Collaborative care for patients with depression and diabetes mellitus: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Comparing with usual care, collaborative care was associated with significantly better depressive outcomes and adherence in patients with depression and diabetes and the implications for collaborative care of diabetic patients with Depression in the future are emphasized.
The prevalence of comorbid depression in patients with type 2 diabetes: an updated systematic review and meta-analysis on huge number of observational studies
TLDR
It is demonstrated that almost one in four adults with T2DM experienced depression, and screening these patients for co-morbid depression and its relevant risk factors is highly recommended.
Association between depression and brain tumor: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
D diagnosis and treatment of co-morbid depression in brain tumor patients need to be addressed in future studies for better life quality and oncology management.

Type 2 diabetes mellitus as a risk factor for the onset of depression: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Compared with non-diabetic controls, people with type 2 diabetes have a 24% increased risk of developing depression, and the mechanisms underlying this relationship are still unclear and warrant further research.
Association of Depression and Diabetes Complications: A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Findings demonstrate a significant and consistent association of diabetes complications and depressive symptoms in type 1 and type 2 adult patients with diabetes.
The prevalence of comorbid depression in adults with diabetes: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
The presence of diabetes doubles the odds of comorbid depression, and the prevalence of depression was significantly higher in diabetic women than in diabetic men, and in uncontrolled studies than in controlled studies.
Associations between depressive symptoms and insulin resistance: The Hoorn Study
TLDR
Only weak associations between depressive symptoms and insulin resistance were found, which did not differ among different glucose metabolism subgroups or between men and women.
Meta-analysis of observational studies in epidemiology: a proposal for reporting. Meta-analysis Of Observational Studies in Epidemiology (MOOSE) group.
TLDR
A checklist contains specifications for reporting of meta-analyses of observational studies in epidemiology, including background, search strategy, methods, results, discussion, and conclusion should improve the usefulness ofMeta-an analyses for authors, reviewers, editors, readers, and decision makers.
Associations of Depression With C-Reactive Protein, IL-1, and IL-6: A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Continuity in clinic- and community-based samples suggests there is a dose-response relationship between depression and these inflammatory markers, lending strength to the contention that the cardiac risk conferred by depression is not exclusive to patient populations.
Depression and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: The Multiethnic Study of Atherosclerosis
TLDR
In MESA, depression was significantly associated with treated diabetes, and depression scores were not associated with homeostatic model assessment of insulin resistance among individuals without diabetes.
