Objective: Suicide is seen in major depression, also in chronic diseases patients. HbA1C is a marker of long-term control of diabetes. The aim of this study was evaluation of the suicidal ideations in diabetic patients and its association with the status of blood sugar control based on Hemoglobin A1c (Hb A1c).

Materials and Methods: This study is a cross-sectional study. The patients were selected randomly. In this study, 180 diabetic patients were studied who were referred to the Ali Ibn Abitaleb Hospital Diabetes Center in Rafsanjan. This study data contain three categories, including demographic, Beck Depression Inventory, Beck suicidal ideations Inventory. HbA1c was extracted from the patients file. The software SPSS-17 was used. The t-test, ANOVA, Chi square and correlation coefficient tests were used.

Results About %36.7 of the patients were male and 114 (%63.3) were female. The mean (± SD) age of patients was 14.28(± 56.98) years (range: 14 - 88 years). Of these patients, 66 (%36.7) reported a history of depression and 114 (%63.3) no depression history. The mean of diabetes duration was 9.25±6.15 years. The mean (± SD) of HbA1c level was 2.08 ± 8.4 (range: 4.8-19.6).

Conclusion: Generally our findings showed that the prevalence of suicidal ideation in the diabetic population in Rafsanjan is less than the general population and other studies. There is no significant relationship between suicidal ideation and the age, sex, duration of diabetes, HbA1c levels, and history of depression.
