Alexithymia In Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: The Role Of Anxiety, Depression, And Glycemic Control

Go to: Abstract This study was aimed at determining the prevalence of alexithymia in patients with type 2 DM and the factors affecting it. This cross-sectional study was conducted with 326 patients with type 2 DM. Study data were collected with the Personal Information Form, Toronto Alexithymia Scale, and Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale. Glycemic control was assessed by glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) results. The analysis was performed using descriptive statistics, chi-square test, Pear-son’s correlation, and logistic regression analysis. Of the patients, 37.7% were determined to have alexithymia. A significant relationship was determined between alexithymia and HbA1c, depression, and anxiety. According to binary logistic regression analyses, alexithymia was 2.63 times higher among those who were in a paid employment than those who were not, 2.09 times higher among those whose HbA1c levels were ≥7.0% than those whose HbA1c levels were <7.0%, 3.77 times higher among those whose anxiety subscale scores were ≥11 than those whose anxiety subscale scores were ≤10, and 2.57 times higher among those whose depression subscale scores were ≥8 than those whose depression subscal Continue reading >>

    hello, i have a very good friend that was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about 5-6yrs ago. i hate to say this but the truth matters. he has been in and out of prison many times. i also have been to the same prison he was in for females. anyway the reason that is relevant is because at that time, the prison psychiatrist was handing out seroquel like it was candy to probably 80% of the prison population anyway i recently found out that my friend got type 2 diabetes, he says he cant understand it. he isnt an overweight man, has never really ate unhealthy except of course in prison where u really dont have a choice and get this (this is when i figured that it was the seroquel) not one person in his entire family, immediate or extended family has ever had diabetes!!!!! im hoping that someone on here can tell me how he would go abouts finding out if it was the seroquel that actually caused it! he suffers from extremely high blood sugar most the times its well into the 600 range! hes on injectable insulin im not sure of the name of it. What i do know is that when he was incarcereated and after he was released he was prescribed 400mg three times a day. Any information would be extremely helpful. I live in Rhode Island as does he. If anyone knows of any experts in this field in New England or anything i would really appreciate it! Thank you!

    I have been taking Seroquel 800mgs now for about 6 yrs now and thats when I got diagnosed with type 2 diabetes but I was also obese and so I'm not sure if the Seroquel caused my diabetes but I have not had any real problems with Seroquel I am actually doing real good on it and will continue to take Seroquel for my mental problems.
