The samples included 30 patients selected through simple randomization from among the members of diabetes community. Harry’s stress questionnaire and a Glocometer were used for data collection. The pre-test and post-test questionnaires were filled out by the patients. Fasting blood suger (FBS) was measured by the researcher before and after the experiment. Cognitive-behavioral therapy was received by the experimental group over 10 sessions of one hour half. The control group did not receive a treatment. The data were analyzed using a covariance analysis.
