Effect of Telephone Follow-up on Blood Glucose Improvement of Diabetes Mellitus Patients with Depressive Symptoms



INFORMATION : page. 29~39 / 2006 Vol.8 No.2


The aim of this study was to examine the effect of telephone follow-up on glycemic control, lipid profiles, and treatment method in diabetic patients with depressive symptoms over one year follow-up period. Twenty-two diabetic patients attended the structured diabetes education program between March 2004 and February 2005 and completed a questionnaire using the Beck Depression Inventory(BDI) to measure depressive symptoms. The patients showed depressive symptoms with the criterion being a BDI score at least 16. The intervention was applied to the telephone follow-up for one year. Data were analyzed using Wilcoxon signed rank test and McNemar test. The patients decreased their mean glycosylated hemoglobin(HbAlc) levels by 1.9%(p=0.001). There was a significant mean change in the fasting blood sugar(FBS) level, with a mean change of -61㎎/㎗(p=0.008). These findings indicated that the telephone follow-up may be effective in the HbAlc and FBS control.
