Abstract
Background: Diabetes is a lifestyle disorder where there is an increase in the blood glucose levels which can be observed. Being diabetic is stressful and being stressful worsens diabetes. Hence, management of stress is most important in diabetic patients. Timely assessment of stress and counseling the patients are highly essential in the management of diabetes. If the stress is ill-managed, it leads to the depression. Depression has to be screened and managed appropriately. Otherwise, it increases the tendency of suicides.

Aims and Objective: The present study was undertaken to observe the depression, anxiety, and stress levels in diabetic patients.

Materials and Methods: The study included 30 type 2 diabetic patients and 30 age- and gender-matched healthy participants. The following criteria were used in the selection of cases. To assess the depression, anxiety, and stress levels, DASS 42 scale was used.

Results: There were significantly higher scores of depression, anxiety, and stress in the diabetics when compared to healthy controls.

Conclusion: The current study suggests that there are higher levels of depression, anxiety, and stress symptoms in diabetic population when compared with healthy controls. We recommend further detailed studies in this area for better understanding of the association and recommend psychological support in the management plan of diabetes.

Key words: Diabetes; Stress; Anxiety; Depression
