Abstract

THE GREAT SOCIAL IMPLICATIONS OF IDDM'S MANAGEMENT EMPHASIZES THE IMPORTANCE OFALL EFFORTS INVOLVED IN THE INVESTIGATION OF ITS CHRONIC COMPLICATIONS (MICROANGIOPATHY). THE TWO MOST IMPORTANT EXPRESSIONS OF DIABETIC MICROANGIOPATHY ARE RETINOPATHY AND NEPHROPATHY. THE INVESTIGATION OF ALL FACTORS INVOLVED IN THEIR PATHOGENESIS IS OF GREAT THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL SIGNIFICANCE. THE MAIN FACTORS WHICH AFFECT THE APPEARANCE OF DIABETIC MICROANGIOPATHY ARE DIABETES DURATION, PUBERTY AND CHRONIC HYPERGLYCEMIA. STRESS IS ONE OF THE FACTORS POSSIBLY INVOLVED IN THE PATHOGENESIS OF DIABETIC MICROANGIOPATHY AND HENCE ITS ROLE IS CURRENTLY UNDER INVESTIGATION. NEVERTHELESS THERE IS A LACK OF A DESCRIPTION OF THE MAIN COMPONENTS OF A STRESS RESPONSE, NAMELY HORMONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL STRESS IN THE SAME POPULATION SAMPLE. THE MAIN GOAL OF THE PRESENT EFFORT IS TO STUDY, AMONG OTHER FACTORS, THE COMPOSITE HORMONAL RESPONSE TO AN ACUTE STRESS AND THE EFFECT OF CHRONIC PSYCHOSOMATIC AND PSYCHOLOGIC STRESS TO THE DIABETIC RETINOPATHY OR NEPHROPATHY. MORE SPECIFICALLY, THE HORMONAL RESPONSE TO A STRESSFUL SITUATION WAS STUDIED BY DETERMINATIONS OF THE STRESS HORMONES (CORTISOL, ACTH, GH, PRL AND ADH), WHILE THE STUDY OF THE PSYCHOLOGICAL STRESS WAS EVALUATED BY THE LEVELS OF PSYCHOSOMATIC STRESS, PSYCHOSOCIAL STRESS AND ANXIETY.
