Adolescents with type 1 diabetes reported more clinically significant depressive symptoms in the spring/summer months (22% in April-September) than in the fall/winter months (11% in October-March) (χ(2)=5.67, p=.018). This seasonal pattern was stronger in low-income adolescents than in adolescents from higher-income families.
