Background and significance: Diabetes mellitus is high prevalent and is threatening in the global world. Medical treatments emphasize on the diabetic person's life style change and their metabolic control. Poor regulated metabolic control persons may consequently result in complications and/or psychological disorder such as anxiety or depression. Several studies have reported the comorbidity in diabetes mellitus and depressive symptoms in the US but no study has done in Taiwan. Objectives: The purpose of this study is to examine the relationships among demographic factors, stressors, and learned resourcefulness on depressive symptoms of diabetic persons. Furthermore, the mediating and moderating effects of learned resourcefulness on the relationship between metabolic control and depressive symptoms of diabetic persons were also examined. Methods: A cross-sectional, descriptive correlation design was examined the relationships among demographic factors, stressors, and learned resourcefulness on depressive symptoms of 133 diabetic persons. Inclusion criteria included (a) individual adults from 18 to 65 years old with diabetes mellitus; (b) duration of diabetes over 6 months; (c) no comorbidity medical conditions influencing metabolic status. Results: The study finding revealed DM patients with greater learned resourcefulness had fewer depressive symptoms. Younger, female DM patients, and with higher HbA1C had more depressive symptoms. In addition, learned resourcefulness mediated metabolic control on depressive symptoms. No moderation between metabolic control and depressive symptoms occurred in this study. Conclusion: Healthcare providers can use a cognitive-behavioral change skill to help Diabetic patients to perform their better metabolic control. The results may suggest using resourcefulness to deal with negative thoughts or behaviors. [Poster Presentation]
