Question from California, USA:
Can a 17 year old young lady who does not take of herself relative to her diabetes cause enough changes in brain chemistry to present symptoms of depression?
I would be more inclined to believe that depression leads to not taking care of diabetes. Depending on one’s personality structure, having to live with diabetes can lead to depressive symptoms. It is sort of a “which came first: the chicken or the egg” type of question that you are asking.
