The effects of reducing stress on blood pressure were investigated in 20 patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. An anxiolytic, fludiazepam, was administered to the patients for 12 weeks and their blood pressures and State Trait Anxiety Inventory scores at the beginning and end of treatment were compared. Systolic and diastolic blood pressures and trait and state anxiety scores were all significantly reduced during the treatment period. There was also a weak correlation between…

Diazepam Potentiates the Antidiabetic, Antistress and Anxiolytic Activities of Metformin in Type-2 Diabetes Mellitus with Cooccurring Stress in Experimental Animals

TLDR
The combination of metformin in combination with diazepam significantly attenuated DMS-induced hyperglycemia, hypertriglyceridaemia, hypercorticosteronemia, anxiety-like behavior, and insulin resistance through modulating insulin signaling pathway in the liver compared to monotherapy.

Psychologic factors as precursors to hypertension

TLDR
The results of these recent studies may lead to new intervention trials specifically selecting hypertensive patients with anxiety or depression for treatment with stress reduction or other appropriate psychologic therapies, and further contribute to the evaluation of anxiety and depression as risk factors for hypertension.

PSYCHOSOCIAL PROFILE OF JUVENILE DIABETES

TLDR
There was an increased incidence of psychiatric morbidity in juvenile diabetics as compared to normal adolescents irrespective of the family environment and an overprotecting attitude amongst parents of juvenileDiabetics.

TLDR
It is shown that hyperglycemia can be produced by chemical stimulation of the brain with morphine as well as with a variety of endogenous neuropeptides and can be abolished by bilateral adrenalectomy.
