Background & Aims: Verbal memory refers to the memory of words and other abstractions related to language. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of diabetes mellitus type 1 on verbal memory considering the moderation role of rumination in adolescents.
Materials & Methods: Using a suitable sampling method, 40 adolescents with diabetes type 1 were selected from members of the Iranian Association for Diabetes. Also, using random sampling method, 40 students from Tehran area 2 were selected as control group. After collecting the rumination questionnaire, subjects were tested by verbal auditory test for verbal memory evaluation. Multiple variance analysis was used to analyze the data.
Results: There was a significant difference between two groups (p> 0.001). Therefore, the performance of subjects with diabetes type 1 was weaker than normal subjects in verbal memory. Also, subjects with higher rumination scores showed a weaker performance in verbal auditory test (p> 0.001).
Conclusion: The results showed that diabetes type 1 causes a decrease in verbal memory function; also, rumination affects the verbal memory function. It should be noted that rumination and diabetes type 1 affect different factors of verbal memory, so rumination does not play a moderating role.
