Behavioural and clinical factors associated with depression among individuals with diabetes
AbstractDepression has been linked to greater mortality and morbidity in diabetic patients, but this issue has not been adequately studied in the Islamic Republic of Iran. This cross-sectional study described the prevalence of depression in patients attending a diabetes clinic in Urmia and determined the associated sociodemographic, behavioural and clinical factors. Of 295 patients, 128 [43.4%] had depression scores [>/= 15] on the Beck Depression Inventory. The mean score for all patients was 15.4 [SD 9. 5]. Those with depression were significantly older and less educated than those without depression, had a longer duration of diabetes and were more likely to suffer complications. On logistic regression analysis, older age was the only variable significantly associated with depression
