Charanpreet Singh

Abstract


Several predisposing factors and traits in diabetics which muddle their behavioural patterns and disorient personality such as; arousing deep buried guilt over in oral demands, powerful unpredictable mood and behaviour changes that are a function of metabolic imbalance, denial, anxiety, hostility, depression, self-consciousness and passive-aggressive etc. Keeping these vital points in mind, this empirical research was conducted to analyse and find correlation of the death anxiety among diabetics and non diabetics. For this 200 samples from Hazaribag District were selected. Incidental cum purpose sampling technique was adopted. The samples were divided into two groups- diabetics and non diabetics. Again the subjects were divided on the basis of gender- (No.50-male diabetics) (No .50- female diabetics). - (No.50- non diabetics male) - (No.50- non diabetics female). Two scales namely Personal Data Sheet and Death Anxiety Scale by Upinder Dhar, Savita Mehta and Santosh Dhar were administered on these groups. Data was collected, tabulated and analysed with the help of Mean, SDs and t.-ratio of acquired data. And it was found that t was not significant. Imperative aspects like age, well settled retired life, religiosity, etc. enhance the self confidence of diabetics to surmount their death anxiety and it was also responsible for making no difference of death anxiety between both the diabetics and non diabetics.
