New link identified between inflammation and depression in type-1 diabetes

Depression in type-1 diabetes patients is associated with higher levels of the inflammatory protein galectin-3, according to new research. These findings suggest that galectin-3 levels may be useful for diagnosis of depression or may be a new target for treating depression associated with type-1 diabetes, which could lead to better patient care.
