This study investigated links between well-being and incident diabetes. Well-being was not associated with diabetes for combined physician-diagnosed and screen-diagnosed diabetes cases. However, when considering only physician-diagnosed diabetes cases, life satisfaction and emotional vitality were associated with a lower risk of developing physician-diagnosed diabates.
