ABSTRACT

A cross-sectional descriptive study, health facility based was implemented included a representative sample of diabetic type 2 adult patients of both genders attending Samtah primary health care centers throughout the study period. The objective was to investigate the prevalence and determinants of depression in type 2 diabetic patients. Data were collected using a questionnaire composed of three main sections: personal characteristics, diabetes-related variables and the Arabic version of the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) to screen, diagnose, and measure the severity of depression. Depression was reported among almost two-thirds of type 2 diabetic patients (62.4%). It was mild among 36% of them, moderate among 17.6%, whereas it was moderately severe and severe among 8.8% of them. Multivariate logistic regression analysis revealed that female patients were at almost 9-folds risk for depression compared to male patients (AOR=8.95; 95% CI=2.94-27.18, p<0.001). Diabetic patients who had family history of depression were more prone to develop depression compared to those without such history (AOR=27.46; 95% CI=3.82- 558.42, p<0.001).

Keywords: Diabetic complications, type 2 diabetic patients, depression severity.
