I read with interest the paper by Badawi et al. on the association between self-rated health and depression of patients with diabetes [1], which was followed up by the 3-year incidence of depression by the same authors [2]. In their cross-sectional study [1], Badawi et al. described a significant relationship between depression score (Patient Health Questionnaire) and self-rated fair/poor health by adjusting related variables. Thereafter, they described the predictive ability of self-rated fair/poor health for depression by the 3-year follow-up study [2]. On their research outcome, I have two concerns. © 2013 The Authors.
