Antipsychotic medications, as well as schizophrenia, have been
associated with an increased risk for diabetes. However, the
relative contributions of the underlying illness, unhealthy lifestyle
behaviors, and medications used to treat schizophrenia are
still unclear. Although first- and second-generation antipsychotics
have been contrasted broadly in the literature regarding their
risks for glucoregulatory abnormalities, there is now sufficient
evidence to suggest that the risk for diabetes is not uniform
within each antipsychotic class.
