[Editorial] Adolescents with diabetes

Diabetes has long been known to influence and be influenced by comorbidity. A collection of papers on diabetes and mental health, published jointly by The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology and The Lancet Psychiatry on May 18, shows that the diversity of interactions is far broader than once was imagined. From the family to the environment, diabetes control is subject to a myriad of stimuli. When these factors combine in adolescence, amidst the psychosocial and physiological transitions of puberty, the confluence can be problematic for glycaemic control and for relationships with health professionals.
