Depression status was assessed using BDI. Quantitative determination of glucose level in serum was performed with enzymatic reference method with hexokinase. Results : There was significant differences in distribution on according the level of blood glucose in observed groups. . In the first group 58% of patients have high level of blood glucose but in second group only 20% of them.. Data obtained in the first groups show significant positive correlation between score of BDI and blood glucose level. P=0,003. The results in examination groups show positive correlation between blood glucose level and socio-demographic and clinical parameters.
