Background and aims: Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. Due to the chronic nature and its complications, the disease can lead to emotional distress and depression. Therefore, the present study was aimed to investigate emotional distress and related factors in type 2 diabetic patients.

Data were collected by demographic and PAID questionnaire. Statistical analysis of data was performed by the T-Test, ANOVA and Pearson correlation coefficient tests.

Results: The average overall score for PAID was 22.28±1.60 that showed low emotional distress (cut- off point≥ 33). In comparison areas with each other, treatment barriers had higher distress for diabetic patients. At the 0.05 level of significance, patient’s age was associated with total score (P=0.041) and the “Depression- Related Problems” area (P=0.035). Also, a significant relationship was found between having hypoglycemia history (P=0.033) and hospitalization due to diabetes (P=0.011) with “psychological distress in relationship to diabetes management” area. Moreover, statistically significant relationships were found among adherence to the diet with the total score (P=0.016) and “Psychological distress in relation to diabetes management” (P=0.032), “Depression- Related Problems”(P=0.021) and “Treatment Barriers”(P=0.003).
