Anxiety and depressive symptoms are highly prevalent in chronic disease patients, including those with type 2 diabetes. These symptoms, often undiagnosed and untreated, adversely impact diabetes management and outcomes.
In this study, Al Sayah and colleagues examined the performance of two of the most commonly used patient-reported outcome (PRO)measures of health-related quality of life (EQ-5D-5L and the SF-12 v.2) in screening for anxiety and depressive symptoms in type 2 diabetes patients in
The researchers found that the EQ-5D-5L and the SF-12 to be suitable tools for screening for anxiety and depressive symptoms in adults with type 2 diabetes. The anxiety/depression dimension of the EQ-5D and the MCS score of the SF-12 had the best performance in screening for these symptoms.
