COVID-ASSOCIATED DEPRESSIVE DISORDERS IN DIABETES MELLITUS
The study showed that diabetes mellitus associated with coronavirus infection is often combined with depressive disorders that aggravate the course of the underlying disease. This leads to the development of complications, in particular in the form of ophthalmic pathology. Patients suffering from diabetes, especially in connection with coronavirus infection, are at risk of developing depression, which makes it possible to recommend the inclusion of a psychotherapist in the complex of examination and treatment of patients with diabetes. Complex therapy of diabetes through the joint efforts of doctors of various specialties (infectious disease specialist, endocrinologist, ophthalmologist, psychotherapist) will improve the quality of medical care for this category of patients. Timely detection and treatment of depressive disorders in covid-associated diabetes mellitus can serve as prevention of complications of this disease.
