Abstract
BACKGROUND: Depressive symptoms are common among adults with diabetes. Depression and social support may influence diabetes self-management. PURPOSE: This study aimed to examine change in depressive symptoms and the role of depression and support on clinical and dietary outcomes among Latinos with type 2 diabetes participating in a diabetes self-management intervention. METHODS: Participants (N = 252) were randomized to the intervention or usual care. Mixed effects models were used to examine interaction effects between intervention status and depressive symptoms (Centers for Epidemiologic Studies Depression (CES-D) score) and support for diabetes self-management behaviors at baseline. Outcomes were measured at baseline and 4 and 12 months and included dietary quality, physical activity, depressive symptoms, and hemoglobin A1c levels. RESULTS: Intervention participants had lower CES-D scores at follow-up than control participants. An interaction effect between intervention status and CES-D scores predicted diet quality. CONCLUSION: Latinos with depressive symptoms may derive the greatest benefits from diabetes self-management interventions. Additional research on support during diabetes self-management interventions is warranted.
