Abstract

Materials and Methods: This was a comparative after-the-fact study conducted in 2011. The participants included 50 patients with type I diabetes who were members of Diabetic Association of Ahvaz city, Iran. Also, 50 non-diabetic relatives of the patients were selected as the control group. Both groups were similar regarding sex and educational status. The 28-item general health questionnaire (GHQ-28) was distributed among both groups. The acquired data were analyzed using analysis of variance (ANOVA) and multivariate variance analysis method (MANOVA). Results: There was a significant difference regarding mental health between those with type I diabetes and those without diabetes (P < .001) except in social dysfunction.

Conclusion: Type I diabetes can affect the mental health of the patients.
