Abstract

Diabetes mellitus has been treated using drug therapy and a strict diet as food intake. However, there has not been much treatment related to the effect of psychological factors as the cause of physical illness. According to the Qur’an, the emergence of Diabetes Mellitus is caused by two main things, namely psychological condition (response to stress, anxiety, and depression) and poor dietary factors. The psychological condition in the Qur’an is referred to as ba’s, which can affect blood sugar level and insulin metabolism. Overeating can also cause a person to be unable to use glucogen and the fat stored in the body as an energy source. This research aims to find out the correlation between depression, anxiety, and stress toward blood sugar in the elderly. This research uses correlational quantitative method design, and the data is collected using DASS test to measure the level of depression, anxiety, and stress with validity of 0.266-0.769 and reliability of 0.939. Meanwhile, the blood sugar level is measured through rapid blood glucose test using blood sugar strips. This study uses a purposive non-random sampling technique with the criteria of being active elderly participants at the Integrated Health Service Post and willing to become research participants by firstly giving informed consent. The results show that there is a very strong correlation between depression, anxiety and stress on blood sugar level in the elderly with a correlation of 0.888 which means that the higher the level of depression, anxiety, and stress in the elderly, the higher blood sugar level in the elderly.
