Abstract

The aim of this study is to analyze the self management of the NIDDM patients in the community and its related factors. We surveyed sixty patients with “Family’s Health Management Card” from Peitau Health Center. All Data were collected through home-visit questionnaire. The findings show that self management among these patients is in middle-range degree while family function ranges above middle-range degree. Different family types show significant differences in diets, medications, blood glucose monitoring and the prevention of hyperglycemia. The sick years shows significant positive correlation with medications, blood glucose monitoring and foot care. Different treatments show significant differences in medications and blood glucose monitoring. Family functions such as communication, affection, role, couple relationship, modes of health care and degree of dependence shows positive correlation with self management. Family function as a whole explained 24.6% variances of diabetes patients’ self management. Based on the above findings, the study offers some suggestions for policy-making, nursing application, medical system and public service in the community.
