Introduction: Depression is one of the most common psychiatric disorders and diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases. Controlling the blood glucose level in the patients suffering from depression is more difficult than in healthy individuals. This study aimed to assess depression, anxiety and stress in diabetic and non-diabetic people.

Methods: This cross-sectional analytical study was carried out using data from the health survey of people in Yazd province (YAHS) in 2014-2015. The sample size of this study was 3514 participants. DASS21 questionnaire was used to measure stress, anxiety and depression. The data were analyzed using SPSS20.

Results: The prevalence of depression, anxiety and stress in diabetic patients was 42.4%, 48.7% and 45.6% and in non-diabetic people was 35.5%, 34% and 38.3%, respectively. The study revealed a meaningful relationship between diabetes and depression, anxiety and stress. The highest rate of depression in diabetic people was found among women and single people. The highest rate of anxiety in diabetic people was found among women and the people with education levels lower than diploma and people having diabetes effects. The highest stress was observed in women as well as single people having diabetes effects (P <0.05). No significant relationship was found between the variables of age and education level with having diabetes effects as well as depression.

Conclusion: Due to the prevalence of depression, anxiety and stress in diabetic patients, psychiatric consultation and the treatment of these disorders is recommended.
