Panic Disorder Can Increase Diabetes Complications

separator New research has shown that people with panic disorder are more likely to have problems managing their diabetes, which can lead to an increase in diabetes complications. In the study, people who had panic disorder reported an average of 4.2 diabetes symptoms, compared with 2.4 symptoms among those who did not have panic disorder.

People who have panic disorder have panic attacks that recur (come back) and then they frequently feel extremely worried that they'll have another attack. The researchers believe it's possible that having diabetes can itself trigger panic episodes.

If you have diabetes and you suffer from panic disorder, be sure to talk with your doctor about getting treatment for both conditions. The better controlled your panic disorder is, the better you'll be able to control your diabetes, which means an increased likelihood of warding off serious complications.
