ABSTRACT

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a frequently experienced metabolic disease with chronic features and involves numerous complications around its course, which causes severe restriction and disability in an individual’s common life. It has been reported that the incidence of depression is higher in diabetic patients and that diabetes is one of the risk factors in the development of depression. A prospective observational study was conducted in a tertiary care hospital, Chennai for a period of 6 months on 115 T2DM patients.All consenting patients with confirmed diagnosis of T2DM were interviewed and screened for depression by administering Questionnaires. Of the 115 T2DM patients, a total of 59 (51.30%) were found to suffer from depression, of which 22 (19.3%) had a mild level of depression, 21 (18.26 %) had a moderate level of depression, 12 (10.43%) had severe depression and 4 (3.47%) had a very severe level of depression and observed to have a low quality of life in depressed diabetic patients. This study found a high proportion of depression among patients with T2DM and also found that presence of depression along with diabetes will results in low quality of life. Therefore the care of individuals with diabetes mellitus (DM) should include the concealing and possible treatment of depression in order to attain and sustain treatment goals

Keywords: Depressive disorder, determinants, Diabetes Mellitus Type 2, health care facilities, risk factors, Quality of life.
