Antidepressants elevate diabetes risk

A recent study presented at the annual meeting of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) found an increase in type 2 diabetes with the use of antidepressants like Prozac.

The study looked at 3,000 people in all. One group was given lifestyle intervention, another a placebo, and the third group was given the diabetes drug metfomin (Glucophage).

The risk of type 2 diabetes increased two to three times in the third? group that took antidepressants. A reason for the link is unknown at this point.
