Stress and Diabetes Mellitus in Later Life.
Krause, Neal
International Journal of Aging & Human Development, v40 n2 p125-43 1995
Examines the relationship between stress and diabetes with data provided by a recent nationwide survey of older adults. Two main findings emerged. First, stressors arising in social roles that are highly important to older adults are more strongly related to diabetes than events associated with less important roles. Second, social support buffers the deleterious effects of stressors in the most salient roles. (JPS)
