Abstract:
Adolescents with T1D are more vulnerable to developing depressive symptoms than their peers and the presence of depressive symptoms can have a negative influence on the self-management of T1D. It is therefore important to gain an understanding of the processes that underlie depressive symptoms in adolescents with T1D and also to examine the relationship between depressive symptoms and metabolic control. A systematic literature review is presented that synthesized and evaluated evidence on the longitudinal relationship between depressive symptoms and metabolic control in adolescents with Type 1 diabetes. The main focus was on issues of directionality within this relationship over time and identifying factors that may influence identified longitudinal associations. An empirical paper that investigated the role of cognitions proposed by Beck’s cognitive theory of depression (1967) and Bandura’s social cognitive theory (1997) in depressive symptoms in adolescents with T1D is also presented. Further research exploring depressive symptoms in adolescents with T1D is required.
