Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that impacts 29 million people in the United States. Diabetes is a disease that develops when one's body becomes resistant to insulin, resulting in abnormal metabolism of carbohydrates, and the blood glucose levels are increased. If hyperglycemia is not managed, it will result in complications. Management of stress is significant in diabetic patients because stressing intensifies diabetes. The majority of type 2 diabetes patients are overwhelmed with managing the disease, and when they can’t control their blood glucose, it results in depression and anxiety. There is a link between lifestyle choices and type 2 diabetes that the author will evaluate, through secondary research, whether these choices can be useful in reversal or even remission of type-2 diabetes. Through the analysis of peer-reviewed literature, qualitative and quantitative data, the author will provide a look into the attributing factors of poorly managed diabetes. The purpose of this study project is to provide a thorough evidence-based review of the effects of this disease on mental health to enhance the awareness of the diabetic population about self-management and relate the idea that, by changing negative lifestyle choices, there is a chance of not needing drugs to manage diabetes.
