Introduction In a framework of the extremely pandemic nature of both depression and diabetes mellitus, the depressing effects report-ed in cases of co morbidity, this assessment suggests that the association of the two situations is complicated. Increased risks of prevalent depression and incident depression among diabetic people have been reported in various community studies. Even more consistent psychosomatic hypotheses regarding, increased risk of diabetes among depressed patients. A latest relevant finding is the increased risk of diabetes reported in depression that is commonly found in the community, namely non severe, persistent, untreated depression. In view of the negative implications of the co-morbidity of depres-sion and diabetes, the implication that all clinically relevant cases of depression found in the community should be treated seems logical. However, new area of research seems compulsory to report the efficacy of treatment of depression and the safety of anti-depressant and anti-diabetics use in cases of co-morbidity

The associations connecting endocrine instability and psychiatric state of affairs have moved considerable interest for sev-eral reasons [1]. Traditionally, several scientists have speculated about the role of hormones and endocrine disturbances in the etiology of psychiatric conditions. Endocrine hypothesis keeps it up today in attempts to explain classical psychiatric disturbances, but more determined research has attempted to document the implicated physio pathologic mechanisms. For example, attention has been devoted to the role of hormones in relation to control and feedback processes in neural structures [2]. On the other hand, psychiatric syndromes have been documented consistently in endocrine diseases and may create a real clinical challenge for the link psychiatrist [3]. The relationship between diabetes mellitus and depression is one of the main examples in this field, but this relationship is intricate and complex and because of negative effects reported in cases of co-morbidity, the relationships between these two conditions are a matter of concern.
