Are psychopathological features relevant predictors of glucose control in patients with type 2 diabetes? A prospective study
Acta Diabetologica, 06/04/2012Rotella F et al.
The results of the present study suggest that clinical features have a much greater impact on attainment of therapeutic goals than psychopathology. However, there are several aspects, such as temperament, motivation, self–efficacy, and well–being, not assessed in the present study, which could be crucial. These areas should be adequately explored for obtaining an overall picture of the psychological determinants of appropriate metabolic control in diabetes.
