Este estudio valora la precisión que tiene el clínico (Médico Especialista en Endocrinología y Nutrición: MEEN) al realizar el diagnóstico de depresión en pacientes con diabetes mellitus tipo 1 (DM1). Participaron 11 MEEN y 153 pacientes con DM1. El diagnóstico de depresión se realizó mediante la entrevista estructurada SCID-1 y la valoración del clínico. De la muestra inicial se seleccionaron aleatoriamente 50 pacientes (imponiendo la condición de que estuviera compuesta por 25 pacientes con depresión y 25 sin depresión). Los resultados muestran que los clínicos realizaron un mayor porcentaje de diagnósticos negativos (paciente sin depresión) que positivos (paciente con depresión). Un porcentaje considerable de pacientes con depresión no fueron diagnosticados (25%). Parece, pues, necesario dotar a los clínicos de protocolos adecuados para evaluar la presencia de este trastorno en DM1, así como continuar la investigación sobre el proceso diagnóstico para la toma de decisiones clínicas

Accuracy of diagnosis of depression in patients with Type 1 diabetes mellitus. This study assesses the clinical accuracy of physicians (Specialists in Endocrinology and Nutrition: SEN) to make the diagnosis of depression in patients with Type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM1). This study involved 11 SEN physicians, and 153 patients with DM1. The diagnosis of depression was performed using the SCID-1 structured interview and clinical assessment. From the initial sample, 50 patients were randomly selected (imposing the condition that it was included 25 patients with depression and 25 without depression). The results show that clinicians performed a higher percentage of negative diagnoses (patients without depression) than positive ones (patients with depression). A significant percentage of patients with depression were not diagnosed (25%). It therefore seems necessary to provide adequate clinical protocols to evaluate the presence of this disorder in DM1, as well as continuing research into the diagnostic process for clinical decision making.
