Abstract

Psychological problems such as depression and anxiety can hamper self-management in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). A new prospective study reported that adults with T2DM and diagnosed anxiety disorder had a higher number of emergency visits and a higher cost status, but not total hospitalization costs, than those without diagnosed anxiety disorder.
