Scientists found a correlation between mental illness and serious form of diabetes of the second type. Patients with diabetes must constantly take pills, diet, injected insulin. This leads to the violation of the synthesis of dopamine in areas of the brain responsible for the control of negative emotions. The result is increased anxiety and depression.
During the experiment were obtained from mice with insulin resistance, writes Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Their behavior was similar to people with combined mental disorders and diabetes. We have shown that many patients with diabetes are prone to frequent changes of mood, demonstrative depression, hypochondria and apathy. Young laboratory mice behaved well.
