Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the depression trends by gender in type2 diabetic patients. Method: One hundred Participants were recruited from the endocrinology outpatient department of a tertiary care hospital in an urban city. Depression was measured using the Beck Depression Inventory. Glycosylated hemoglobin was determined by a high-performance liquid chromatography technique. Fasting plasma glucose and 2 hour post-prandial blood glucose were analyzed by the glucose oxidase method. Results: The Depression score was significantly higher in diabetic women (l0.4) than in male diabetic patients (7.8). In male diabetic patients, depression was positively correlated with glycosylated hemoglobin (r=0.35, p=0.006). However, there was no correlation between depression and glycosylated hemoglobin in female diabetic patients. Conclusion: These findings indicate that depression score was significantly higher in female diabetic patients and the depression was positively correlated with glycosylated hemoglobin in male diabetic patients.
