A recent commentary in The Lancet emphasised the effect of mental health on diabetes. We would particularly like to highlight the mental health issues of black and minority ethnic (BME) populations with diabetes in the UK, owing to the considerably higher prevalence of diabetes and mental illness among BME populations compared with the national average.
