Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to 1) evaluate perceived risk for diabetes among type 2 diabetes patients with different types of diabetes follow-up: diabetologist, general practitioner, or both ("combined follow-up") in the community and university settings and 2) determine the prognostic factors for better/ higher risk perception of diabetes among these patients.
Methods: In this cross-sectional study, we quantified diabetes risk perception using Walker’s RPS-DM survey. The PRIME-MD PHQ questionnaire was used to screen for mood and anxiety disorders. The global risk perception scores were coded in two categories (low/high) and compared across the various types of medical follow-up; univariate and multivariate logistic regression techniques were used to examine the association between perceived risk, patients’ sociodemographic factors, diabetes characteristics and psychological profile.
