Yes, I am diabetic (with medicine) and suffer from panic attacks as well as anxiety and depression. My mood changes throughout the day and I am activly trying to get everything back on track. I recently went to a doctor and he made me lose my temper in front of my little girl. I was embarrased but how would one react if they were told that they needed to go to rehab for the amount of medication they were on that was prescribed by another doctor…"HELLO…that is why I am here to get weened off and monitored better" but he didn't seem to grasp that. I hope that he gets the help he needs and me as well. I do have a bad liver also but it is due to the diabetes and drinking…IM A RECOVERED ALCOHOLIC!!!

Yep we all do that s just one of the symptoms that comes with diabeties. He will get better, sometime we have good days and turn around and have a bad day too. But he cant help it most of the time. Its almost as if you have to walk in his shoes. But together we can hold hands on this site and try hard to make more better days for the two of you.

Until you walk a day in someone's shoes that has diabetes, depression, anxiety and panic attacks like I do every day you can never know how I feel. My girlfriend says it every day that she knows that I am hurting and she wishes she could take it away for just a day or forever, but some days are better than others and hopefully the doctors can help each patient out that needs it.

First of all, Welcome to DC. Its a very friendly place.We learn from each other by sharing our experiences.
Mood swings are common. The better your bg control,
the mood swings should settle down. If your bg. is to high or low it affects your mood.

TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR IF YOU SUSPECT OR NOTICE ANY SIGNS OF DEPRESSION !

Spotting depression is the first step. Getting help is the second.

If you have been feeling really sad, blue, or down in the dumps, check for these symptoms:

•Loss of pleasure — You no longer take interest in doing things you used to enjoy.Change in sleep patterns — You have trouble falling asleep, you wake often during the night, or you want to sleep more than usual, including during the day.
•Early to rise — You wake up earlier than usual and cannot to get back to sleep.
•Change in appetite – You eat more or less than you used to.
•Trouble concentrating — You can't watch a TV program or read an article because other thoughts or feelings get in the way.
•Loss of energy – You feel tired all the time.
•Nervousness — You feel so anxious you can't sit still.
•Guilt – You feel you "never do anything right" and worry that you are a burden to others.
•Morning sadness — You feel worse in the morning than you do the rest of the day.
•Suicidal thoughts — You feel you want to die or are thinking about ways to hurt yourself.

If you have three or more of these symptoms, or if you have just one or two but have been feeling bad for two weeks or more, it's time to get help. Talk to your doctor about it to help you determine if the cause of your depression is the result of a medical condition or lifestyle factors.

Mood changes and Depression are common in Diabetics due to the Hormonal changes within the body.

Click on this link for more information on this subject :

http://www.prweb.com/releases/Diabetes/Diabet...

Most of the time, news concerning diabetes seems to be aimed at women. Usually, articles concerning men deal with impotence. But men may also experience more severe problems with their diabetes: aggression and frightening mood swings.

As men age, their hormonal health changes dramatically as testosterone levels are depleted and oestrogen levels rise. This is known as Andropause. When these hormonal changes are also compounded with the blood sugar fluctuations of type 2 diabetes, some unusual patterns of mood and emotions can manifest in older men.

What men eat, and when, affects the major hormones that keep them emotionally and physically fit. Dietitians and doctors also point to the benefits of regular exercise and communication in managing these issues.

Many men go through a period of guilt, anger and remorse when they find out they have type 2 diabetes. They know that, through their lifestyle choices, they may have contributed to the development of a condition that will change their life forever. Or they may blame others for 'leading them' to their current state.
