Family Support Related to Quality of Life in Diabetes Mellitus Patients with Ulcer
Background: Some issues which might be frequently discovered in patients with diabetes mellitus with slow ulcer healing. These conditions are due to prolonged treatment, high treatment costs, decreased productiveness, and less family support, all of which have an essential effect on the patient's quality of life. The objective of the study is to identify the relationship of family support with quality of life in diabetes mellitus patients with ulcers. Methods: This observational study involved 47 randomly selected patients with type 2 Diabetes Mellitus aged 40-80 years, with foot ulcers and have no diabetic ketoacidosis and nonketotic hyperosmolar complications. Using Hensarling’s Diabetes Family Support Scale and Diabetes Quality of Life questionnaire, data were collected. Data were analyzed using the Spearman rank test with a significance level of p <0.05. Results: The results indicated that, on average, diabetes mellitus patients with ulcers had adequate family support, particularly in terms of informational assistance, as well as excellent lifestyles. This study found that family support is related to the quality of life (p = 0.048). Conclusion: Excellent family support will enhance self-care management compliance in order that the quality of life of diabetes mellitus patients will improve. Assistance and empowerment of the role of the family in being concerned for Diabetes mellitus patients can maximize family support for patients.
