Re: [IP] Diabetes and depression????

For those who have been diagnosed with depression, I have a few questions...
Is your depression caused by high blood sugars or is it a more constant
thing?  What made you seek professional help, and what kind of professional
are you seeing?  Do you take drugs, therapy, or a combination of both?

I was diagnosed by one doc as having depression and/or anxiety disorder ( I
only went to him once because I moved shortly after), but another said it
would go away when my sugars were under control.  The depression seems to
have gone away for the most part, now that I am on the pump and better
control 10 months later.  Every now and then it comes back, but more often I
experience problems with anxiety still.  I am wondering if I should seek
counseling or see an MD for meds or if it is all because of my blood sugars
