Abstract

At the end of a week of education, 120 diabetics (I.D.D.M.) checked the list of items from the Von Zerssen's test. This self evaluation test classifies the mood in to depression (13%), anxiety (27%), normal (39%) and euphoria (21%). The ages of the patients and the duration of their diabetes were irrelevant to the results. But, according the type of diabetes, the results become: discovery of I.D.D.M.: depression (4%), anxiety (35%), normal (35%), euphoria (26%); I.D.D.M. (former N.I.D.D.M.): depression (16%), anxiety (28%), normal (31%), euphoria (25%); I.D.D.M. ancient: depression (15%), anxiety (23%), normal (45%), euphoria (17%).
