Background: Depression is highly prevalent in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). Diabetic depression has been shown to be associated with low-grade systemic inflammation. In recent years, the systemic immune-inflammation (SII) index has been developed as an integrated and novel inflammatory indicator. The aims of this study were to investigate the relationship between diabetic depression and SII levels, adjusting for a wide range of potential confounding factors, to examine the potential of SII in predicting diabetic depression.

Methods: The present cross-sectional study was conducted among adults with DM in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey between 2009 and 2016, the SII level was calculated as the platelet counts× neutrophil counts/lymphocyte counts. Patient Health Questionnaire-9 was used to measure depression in patients with DM. Multivariable logistic regression and propensity score-matched analysis were used to analyze the association between SII levels and depression.

Results: A total of 2566 patients with DM were included in the study, of which 370 (13.3%) were diagnosed with depression. Multivariable logistic regression showed that high SII level was an independent risk factor for diabetic depression (OR = 1.347, 95% CI: 1.031-1.760,= 0.02882) after adjusting for covariates. The relationship between SII and diabetic depression was further verified by propensity score-matched analysis.

Conclusion: Our data suggest that SII is a risk factor for depression in patients with DM. The SII may be an easily accessible and cost-effective strategy for identifying depression in patients with DM. More studies are warranted to further analyze the role of SII in depression in diabetic patients.
