Depression, Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity

Depression plays an important role in the pathogenesis and treatment of obesity and types 2 diabetes, its relevance is frequently unrecognized by clinicians and researchers. People with depression or anxiety may experience weight gain or weight loss due to their condition or the medications that treat them. Depression and anxiety can both be associated with overeating, poor food choices, and a more sedentary lifestyle. Over time, weight gain may eventually lead to obesity. Practical implications of the depression-obesity duet include the training of the health providers to assess and treat these conditions in a concomitant manner, the need for translational medicine projects and the application the systems biology approach to fill the existing gaps of knowledge
