From Cleveland, Ohio, USA:
My 16 year old son has had diabetes for nine years. He has been seeing a psychologist because of depression and the psychologist wants to refer him to a psychiatrist for medication. Will antidepressants affect his glucose control or cause a need for a change in his insulin dose?
Most antidepressants do not significantly effect diabetes -- and dramatic insulin dose changes are typically not required.
