Diabetes psychosocial experience

Data exploration for assessing whether it is possible to conduct an analysis of differential stigma-related experiences and psychosocial and health functioning between individuals diagnosed with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Scientific Questions Being Studied

Data exploration for assessing whether it is possible to conduct an analysis of differential stigma-related experiences and psychosocial and health functioning between individuals diagnosed with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Social / Behavioral

Scientific Approaches

I plan to develop hypotheses based on available data items (should they prove sufficient to address these questions) and run statistical analyses in R to assess differences between individuals diagnoses with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Will likely also evaluate potential moderators of relationships including weight status, gender, and race/ethnicity. I may also compare these to a sample that is unaffected by diabetes.

Anticipated Findings

It is preliminary to make specific hypotheses, however, results may identify situations under which individuals with diabetes experience differential treatment and how such differential treatment, such as in the medical system, might relate to downstream decrements in psychological well-being and health.

Demographic Categories of Interest

This study will not center on underrepresented populations.
