A group of 57 children with recent onset of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus was studied over 18 months. Compliance with the prescribed diabetic treatment deteriorated over this period. Adolescents (aged 13 to 15 years) were less compliant than preadolescents (aged 9 to 12 years). Initial patient reports of self-esteem, perceived competence, social functioning, behavioral symptoms, and their adjustment to diabetes predicted subsequent compliance behaviors. The findings highlight the linkage… Expand
Prevalence and predictors of pervasive noncompliance with medical treatment among youths with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
Social competence, self-esteem, and aspects of family functioning at IDDM onset and initial psychiatric status did not predict noncompliance, however, noncompliance was associated with having major psychiatric disorder later in the course of IDDM. Expand
Temperament characteristics and clinical outcomes in young children with diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
Analyzing the relationship between individual differences, as measured via the temperament construct, and disease-related indices revealed that combinations of certain child and maternal characteristics were highly efficient in distinguishing between children in adequate vs poor glycemic control and behavioral compliance.

Childhood Precursors of Adolescent Outcomes in Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus
TLDR
It is suggested that the antecedents of adverse diabetes and psychological outcomes in adolescence lie in the years prior to adolescence, and the model of care in childhood diabetes mellitus must be focussed on earlier screening and intervention if adverse outcomes are to be reduced. Expand
Psychiatric illness and family support in children and adolescents with diabetic ketoacidosis: a controlled study.
TLDR
Children with recurrent DKA may be at greater risk of associated psychopathology than diabetic controls with no such history, and their families may lack warm, caring parent-child relationships. Expand
Symptoms of depression are important to psychological adaptation and metabolic control in children with diabetes mellitus
TLDR
The relationship between adaptation to diabetes mellitus (DM) and psychological functioning and the patients’ ability to cope with diabetes as assessed by physicians, was correlated to adaptation or psychological functioning. Expand
Compliance with chronic illness regimens: school-aged children and adolescents.
  • V. Pidgeon
  • Medicine
  • Journal of pediatric nursing
  • 1989
TLDR
It appears that psychological needs may compete and conflict with the need for adherence to illness regimens in adolescence, and factors that emerged as most important in adolescent compliance were self-esteem, social functioning, and perceived autonomy. Expand
Psychosocial Predictors of Acute Complications of Diabetes in Youth
TLDR
The findings are suggestive of relationships that may lead to early identification of patients who are prone to recurrent ketoacidosis, and to the development of early intervention strategies. Expand
Psychological Characteristics of Adults With IDDM: Comparison of Patients in Poor and Good Glycemic Control
TLDR
It is suggested that poorly controlled adult patients have underlying perceptions of hyperglycemic symptoms and physical well-being that distinguish them from patients with well-controlled diabetes. Expand
The relationship between self-esteem and glycemic control in 13-17 year old adolescent girls with type 1 diabetes mellitus
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to describe the self-esteem of adolescent girls aged 13-17 years who are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes mellitus living in the Inland Empire and to describes the correlation between self- esteem and glucose control operationalized as their HgAlc. Expand
Biomedical and Psychosocial Predictors of Early Rehospitalization Among Children With Insulin‐dependent Diabetes Mellitus: A Longitudinal Study
TLDR
Four variables significantly increased the risk of early rehospitalization: severity of child's externalizing symptoms at IDDM‐onset, lower socio‐economic status, younger age at onset of IDDM, and higher levels of glycosylated haemoglobin, reflecting poorer metabolic control. Expand

TLDR
This study suggests that onset of diabetes does not necessarily lead to major disruptions of psychological adaptation and affirms the view that early adjustment to diabetes is embedded in a context of overall personality development and adaptation. Expand

TLDR
This study suggests that the onset of proliferative retinopathy portends a life crisis during which metabolic control is sensitive to additional life stress and that this association is not found among patients whose illness is more stable. Expand

TLDR
Results of this initial attempt at measuring diabetic adjustment suggest that this group of girls with juvenile diabetes was relatively well adjusted and that their attitudes toward diabetes correlate positively with many adjustment factors. Expand

TLDR
The diabetes-specific measures were generally more predictive of adherence than were the more global measures and the psychosocial measures were not directly related to metabolic control, but they were associated with adherence. Expand

TLDR
Results indicate that levels of self‐esteem and depression highly correlate with the level of adjustment as assessed on the Diabetic Adjustment Scale (DAS), which point to the usefulness of the DAS as a potential screening device for low self‐ esteem and depression in adolescent girls who have diabetes.
