Stress and immune function in diabetes mellitus.


Type I diabetic men were found to have a greater number of stresses, more perceived stress per episode, greater anxiety, poorer immune function, and less metabolic control than Type II diabetic men. Degree of family support and compliance with the medical regimen did not differ. Correlation of perceived stress with immune function and metabolic control showed that Type I had more correlates than Type II, with more perceived stress associated with more depressed immune responses.
