Introduction: Diabetes stigma puts patients under the pressure and affects their lives. Considering the importance of stigma in the life and its effect on behavior and social interaction of patients with diabetes, the present study was conducted to determine the stigma in female adults with type I diabetes.
Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 110 adult girls with type 1 diabetes referred to the Iranian Diabetes Association. The participants were within the age range of 14-18 years, who were selected through convenience sampling technique. The data collection tools included the demographic information questionnaire, stigma perception questionnaire associated with type I diabetes, and Rosenberg’s Self-Esteem Scale. Data were analyzed by SPSS software (version 22) using one way-ANOVA, independed t-test,  and Pearson correlation.
