Yes both anxiety and depression are the main effects of diabetes. Diabetic people become anxious over monitoring their glucose levels and maintaining the right weight. Whenever they realize they're prone to other disorders like heart and kidney diseases, they become more anxious. To stop anxiety, a diabetic person should exercise frequently, take the correct diet, avoid stress at all costs, and avoid alcoholic drinks. Some of the anxiety symptoms may include, rapid heartbeat, panic, and restlessness.
Depression for diabetic persons is very risky and might lead to death in case a doctor is not consulted. Some of the symptoms for diabetic persons include, insomnia, anxiety, loss of appetite, and sadness. Treatment for the depression is same as anxiety as mentioned above (exercising, checking on your diet, and avoid stress).
