Abstract

Cardiovascular complications are prevalent and serious clinical outcomes of type II diabetes. The purpose of this study was to investigate psychological, social and disease-related risk factors for incidence of cardiovascular complications in patients with type II diabetes. Materials and Methods: In a correlational descriptive study, 264 patients with type II diabetes were selected by convenient sampling in Tehran, Shariati Hospital outpatient clinics from May to Aug 2010. Data were collected by demographical questionnaire along with disease characteristics and scales of quality of life, resiliency and diabetes self-management. Then, data analyzed by binary logistic regression with PASW software. Results: Glycosylated hemoglobin, body mass index, quality of life, resiliency and diabetes self-management are significantly able to differentiate diabetic patients with cardiovascular complications from diabetic patients without cardiovascular complications (P<0.001). Sex, age, diabetes duration and treatment type are not significantly able to differentiate two groups (P>0.05). The total regression model explained that 97 of this sample was classified correctly.  Conclusion: Glycosylated hemoglobin, body mass index, quality of life, resiliency and diabetes self-management contribute in incidence of cardiovascular complications in patients with type II diabetes and all together may explain greater variation in prevalence of cardiovascular complications in these patients. These results could be applied in planning preventive intervention for diabetes and its complications. It is necessary to consider these factors in health promotion programs for diabetic patients.  Â
