I suffer from bi-polar disorder and diabetes so i understand your depression because i do get more moody and emotional when my sugar is off but i dont relate it to my diabetes really more to my mental illness!

I have found that having blood sugars that are too high or too low can wreak havoc on your emotons. However, when your blood sugars are kept under good control, you will experience a more well balance of emotions. Also, I find that exercise is one of the best things to help combat the emotional swings. The adrenalin pumping from exercising just clears the mental cobwebs.

Our sugar levels have a lot to do with our moods, unfortunately. So depending on what you are predisposed to do, say cry or snap or get frustrated, those things seem to be more glaring when our levels are high. I find I get moody if they are above about 190. I get grumpy.
