For participants without diabetic foot ulceration, no significant relationships were observed between total PAIS-SR score and age (r=0.128, p=0.206), marital status (Z=1.155, p=0.248), education levels (F=5.491, p=0.139), employment status (F=5.470, p=0.140), diabetes duration (F=0.772, p=0.680), monitoring blood glucose (F=1.813, p=0.404), smoking cigarettes (Z=1.879, p=0.060) and drinking alcohol (Z=0.159, p=0.874), but significant relationships were found between total PAIS-SR score and gender (Z=2.232, p=0.026) and exercising (Z=2.770, p=0.006).
A significant positive correlation was found between total PAIS-SR scores and HbA1c levels in participants with diabetic foot ulceration (r=0.208, p=0.038) indicating that poorer psychosocial adjustment to illness was associated with poorer metabolic control i n participants with diabetic foot ulceration.
Willoughby et al (2000) found that women with diabetes were well adjusted to their illness (mean total PAIS-SR was 30 [+ or -] 21).
We were interested in determining if those subjects who were well adjusted according to their score on the PAIS-SR were also the subjects who functioned more independently, endorsed a fewer number of communication problems, and perceived themselves as high disclosers in communication dyads.
