Mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) seem to positively impact glycaemic control and psychological outcomes, such as glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) levels and disease-related distress, in diabetic patients, reports a new meta-analysis.
Current use of antidepressants interfering selectively with the reuptake of serotonin and those antagonizing the 5‐HT2A receptor results in a reduced risk of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), a recent study has shown.
