21st INRC [Research Presentation] Purpose: To determine quality of life, body mass index and glycemic control in Mexican adults with type 2 diabetes?at the beginning?of a cognitive-educational intervention. Methods: This is?basic data from a quasi-experimental study carried out in adults with type 2 diabetes,?in those who?are applying a Cognitive-Educational Nursing Intervention during six months in four sessions, in order to improve self-care behaviors, quality of life and glycemic control. The randomized sample size was 39 participants from 17 Health Centers in Tampico City Mexico. There were used anthropometric measures, a Spanish adapted?version of Quality of Life Questionnaire and biochemical testing (HbA1c and fasting blood glucose). For data analysis there were calculated frequencies, proportions and central tendency measures. Results: Average age was 52 years (DE = 9.55), scholarity 6.7 years (DE = 2.69) and illness duration 8.64 years (DE = 6.24). 79% were female. 36% had blood hypertension. It was found a low index of quality of life (X = 19.58, DE = 14.34). 92.3 % had obesity/overweight, and 7.7 normal weight. 97.4 % from participants had poor glycemic control (HbA1c > 7%).Conclusion: Findings of this research lead suggest that this population have a low perceived quality of life,?a high prevalence of overweight/obesity and poor glycemic control. Therefore, it could be a?good strategy to intervene through a Cognitive-educational Nursing intervention in order to improve self-care behaviors and quality of life. It has been demonstrated that this can prevent and delay diabetes chronic complications.?
