Acute psychosis and type 2 diabetes mellitus:should screening guidelines be revised?

Author information

Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA, USA.


Although psychosis increases the risk for developing type 2 diabetes, the temporal relationship between the onset of psychosis and the onset of diabetes has not been studied. We present 6 cases of acute psychosis, which led to the new diagnosis of type 2 diabetes during inpatient psychiatric admission within days to weeks of the psychotic episode. The implications of these findings and the efficacy of current diabetes screening guidelines are discussed.
