Abstract

The relationship between depressive symptoms and glycemic control in youth with type 2 diabetes was assessed at baseline (n = 682), 6, and/or 24 months (n = 576). Neither baseline nor persistence of depressive symptoms was significantly associated with maintenance of glycemic control. Nevertheless, depressive symptoms were common, suggesting the importance of repeated screening.
