The effects of biofeedback-assisted relaxation on people with Type I, insulin-dependent diabetes.

15 Aug
Angela McGrady at The Medical College of Ohio studied the effects of biofeedback-assisted relaxation on a small sample of people with Type I, insulin-dependent diabetes, and found the intervention extremely promising. Significantly more members of the imagery group reduced their blood glucose by 10% after one month, and some decreased insulin intake. Anxiety and especially depression appeared to interfere with a positive outcome.
