Background and significance: China will have the highest increase in
the prevalence of diabetes from 1995 to 2025 (King, Aubert, & Hermna,
1998). Diabetes requires a high level of patient responsibility for
day-to-day management and diabetes self-management is considered the
cornerstone to prevent diabetic complications (Clement, 1995). However,
there is a shortage of literature on diabetes self-management among
patients with diabetes in China. Purpose: The purposes of the study were
to determine if Chinese patients were instructed in management of their
diabetes and if they performed self-management. Method: A cross-sectional
survey was conducted at a major hospital in Beijing China. A convenience
sample of 60 Chinese patients with diabetes answered a survey consisting
of questions regarding demographic information, diabetes self-management
received, and performed. Results: Most participants reported that they
received recommendations on medications (96.7%), diet (95%), exercise
(83%), glucose testing (88%) but fewer patients reported they received
recommendations on foot care (58%). Among the participants, 60% followed
diabetic diet recommendation, 50% exercised, 27% performed foot care, and
only 10% performed glucose self-testing every day in the past 7 days.
Participants with higher family income more frequently performed glucose
self-testing than those with lower income (F=7.09, p < 0.05). Conclusion:
The findings demonstrated that most Chinese patients with diabetes have
received diabetes self-management but not necessarily adhere to
recommendations. Information on foot care was not emphasized resulting in
lower level of foot care. Financial burden was found to be a factor
influencing performance of glucose self-testing. Relevance to Nursing:
These findings indicate the need for interventions directed at adherence
to diabetes self-management in Chinese patients. Providing more
comprehensive information is necessary as well as determining the reasons
for lack of adherence to self management. Assisting patients obtain
resources to decrease financial burden would promote glucose self-testing.
