Aim: This paper reports a study examining the self-care behavior and related factors in type 2 diabetic elderly and explores the predictors of self-care behavior. Background: Self-care behavior plays an essential role in the treatment of diabetes, but there have been few studies on self-care behavior in depressed type 2 diabetic elderly.  Consequently, there is a need to further discuss the influence of depression on self-care behavior in diabetes.  Methods: This study adopts 165 effective samples based on purposive sampling from diabetic patients of General Medicine Department and Endocrinology and Metabolism Department; research tools include: the Personal Resource Questionnaire 2000(PRQ 2000), Diabetes Self-Care Scale, and Taiwan Geriatric Depression Scale (TGDS). Results: (1) Men had better self-care behavior scores than women did. Cases of high school graduates and college graduates had better self-care scores than cases of the illiterate; college graduates had better scores than elementary school graduates. Those with an income of 20 thousand to 50 thousand per month had higher scores than those with lower income under one thousand. Non-religionists got higher scores than religionists did. (2) Social support was significantly correlated to self-care behavior in a positive way. (3) Social support, education and duration of diabetes were important predictors of self-care behavior, accounting for 35.6% of the total variance. Conclusions: The study results may help nurses understand more about self-care behavior, and related factors of the diabetic elderly and serves as reference for future studies on self-care behavior in type 2 diabetic elderly.
