Psychological support lacking for diabetes patients

8th April 2009

A report from the charity Diabetes UK has found that most people with diabetes lack specialist psychological support.

The charity found that around 85% of those with diabetes had at best seen generic mental health professionals who had virtually no useful knowledge of their condition or the problems they faced because of it. Only 10% of diabetes services used screening or assessment tools for psychological problems, said the charity, which believes psychological services are crucial in helping people with diabetes live with the condition.
