Background and Objective: Diabetes is a common, malignant and progressive disease. Patients experience numerous physical and emotional disorders during and after treatment. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of acceptance and commitment therapy based on anxiety, depression and lipid profile in type 2 diabetic patients.
Methods: This study was a quasi-experimental, post-test, post-test, control group study. The study population consisted of all type 2 diabetic patients referring to Birjand Diabetes Clinic in spring 2019. 40 patients were selected Available and randomly assigned into two groups of 20 experimental and control groups. Acceptance and commitment intervention was performed in 8 90-minute sessions. Data were collected by completing the Levibond and Levibond (1995) anxiety and depression subscales before and after the intervention. Data were analyzed by SPSS software version 22 using one-way and multivariate analysis of covariance at the significant level α = 0.05.
Results: After intervention, depression, anxiety and lipid scores were significantly decreased in the experimental group compared to the control group (p <0.001).
Conclusion: Based on the timing of this research, Acceptance and commitment therapy seems to be effective in reducing anxiety, depression and lipid profile in type 2 diabetic patients. It is recommended that this treatment be used as a complementary treatment in other psychosomatic diseases.
