A new study says that there is a third type of depression. Considering the two types of antidepressants treat an imbalance of serotonin or norepinephrine, it makes sense why so many people are left feeling defeated even after treatment for depression. It’s not treating the cause of their condition.
People with diabetes are prone to depression. Many people with diabetes who are put on antidepressants are never adequately treated and continue with the chronic existence of their depression. This may be a new option to help people with diabetes stabilize their moods. For the record: glucose lows and highs can affect mood, too. I wonder if this helps remedy the third cause of depression.
The reason I mention this is because when I saw the propensity for retinal disease and kidney disease – I almost immediately saw the parallel to diabetes. The abnormal length of the cilia in the neuron in the brain were fascinating but oh so telling.
Perhaps the 30% of untreatable depression cases are due to glucose imbalance. The protein was identified in the study. The correlation is activity in subjects. Activity is fueled by glucose. Glucose is imbalanced in people with diabetes. The population affected with diabetes or prediabetes is in the ballpark to that of people living with untreatable depression.
