“We found clear evidence that the low level of diabetes self-efficacy was associated with the experience of psychological distress regardless of race/ethnicity and that patients’ racial and ethnic backgrounds moderated the relation between diabetes self-care and psychological distress among older patients with diabetes,” Giyeon Kim, PhD, of the department of psychology, at the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, and colleagues wrote.
