https://psychcentral.com/lib/diabetes-and-depression/

Several studies suggest that diabetes doubles the risk of depression compared to those without the disorder. The chances of becoming depressed increase as diabetes complications worsen. Research shows that depression leads to poorer physical and mental functioning, so a person is less likely to follow a required diet or medication plan.

This article describes the association between diabetes and depression.
