The study investigated the psychological problems that occurred after diabetes diagnoses. Available literature reviewed has confirmed that less than one-fifth of the people in the world who are diagnosed of diabetes mellitus received only some level of care required in maintaining optimal health and quality of their life but other aspect of care (psychosocial) are either neglected or are not given serious attention in the treatment plan which can at the end hinder the success of the entire treatment, this include effective national and international guidelines on the treatment of diabetics which only few individual achieved the appropriate levels of care
