Emerging Evidence in Health and Disability: Individuals with Diabetes and Depression May Need More Support for Exercise
Vickers, K. S., Nies, M. A., Patten, C. A., Dierkhising, R., & Smith, S. A. (2006). Patients with diabetes and depression may need more support for exercise. American Journal of Health Behavior, 30(4), 353-362.
The study objective was to examine the association between depressive symptoms and exercise-related variables among individuals with type 2 diabetes.
Multiple linear regression was utilized to gauge the associations among the depression and exercise variables. Results showed that lower use of relapse prevention behavior was significantly associated with higher depression scores in a multivariate model.
