Pathocharacteristic changes are denoted by a number of researches as complications of DM type 2. Certain personality traits such as alarming, anancastic and dependent personality traits are classically considered as one of the factors of getting DM type 2. The influence of pathopersonologic personality traits including acquired by DM on patients’ compliance to therapy stipulates high priority of their research.

543 patients with DM type two under medical treatment were examined. The first clinical group of 57 patients with DM type 2 with mild case. The second clinical group of 312 patients with moderately severe DM type 2. The third clinical group of 172 patients with nasty form of DM type 2. We have conducted research for five years (2012–2017 years).

Methods of research: anamnestic, clinical-psychopathological, psychodiagnostical, statistical.

There are established personality traits, which are predisposed by DM type 2. According to the induction risk level they are divided into such sections: section I – high risk of DM type 2 induction as one of the components of DM type 2 etiopathogenesis; section II – medium risk of DM type 2 induction; section III – low risk of DM type 2 induction.

The research established the personality peculiarities of patients with DM type 2 and on its basis the modification of personological continuum of patients with DM type 2, as the disease progresses, was concluded.

The established personality peculiarities of patients with DM type 2 can provide a basis for diabetic pathopersonoligy, that improves the quality of differential diagnosis of DM type 2 comorbid psychic disorders and approaches to DM type 2 therapy and psychoprophylaxis, the improvement of quality of patients’ with DM type two treatment, also in a context of compliance to DM type 2 therapy correction by the leveling of discompliant personality traits
