For gathering of data, SCL-90-R test, HbA1c assessment experiment for evaluation of long-term control of glycaemic and BMI assessment, cholesterol, triglyceride as physiological indexes were used. Pearson correlation coefficient and multivariate regression were used for analysis of data on SPSS-17 software. Â Results: HbA1c index had positive relationship with variables of somatic complaint (r=0.23), obsession (r=0.27), sensitivity (r=0.29), depression (r=0.28), anxiety (r=0.28), phobia (r=0.26), psychosis (r=0.27) and general score of psychological symptom (r=0.29) with P<0.01; and hostility (r=0.17) and paranoid thoughts (r=0.21) with P>0.05. Triglyceride physiological index correlated with somatic complaint, obsession, sensitivity, depression, anxiety, paranoid thoughts, psychosis and general score of psychological symptom (P<0.05). Cholesterol index correlated with somatic complaint (P<0.05) and BMI with depression and hostility (P<0.05). In total, 15 of the variance in HbA1c is explained by psychological profile components and physiological indices.
