Summary Objective: The evidence treatment gap for patients with type 2 diabetes.
Design: A summary of convenience sample of seven general practices.
Setting: Metropolitan and rural Victoria, Australia.
Participants: 561 patients of general practices (75% from rural general practices).
Main outcome measures: Demographic data, duration of diabetes, diabetes complications, HbA1c and lipid levels, blood pressure and score on PHQ-9.
Results: Patients with depression show more severe, progressive and intensively treated diabetes. The prevalence of depression in diabetes is about twice that of the general population.
Conclusion: Australian guidelines for diabetes should recommend screening for depression.
