Name of Study
|Correlators of Diabetes Distress in young adults living with type 1/ type 2 diabetes.
Purpose of Study
|The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between Diabetes Distress (DD), social support (SS) and social anxiety within Irish young adults living with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes aged 18-25, using validated measures. The level of DD in young people aged 18-25 will be measured using the Diabetes Distress Scale (DDS).
The level of social anxiety (SA) and social support (SS) will be measured in relation to DD using the Social Support Survey (SSS) and the Social Anxiety Severity Disorder Measure (SMSDM).
Potential relationships between DD, SS and SA will be investigated using a correlation.
This research has the potential to raise awareness for young adults living with type 1/type 2 diabetes and the DD experienced when emerging into adulthood. This contribution to research could in turn increase the support out there and contribute to previous research conducted on DD in those living with diabetes,
