    ABSTRACT: To explore the effectiveness of systematic self-management education on blood sugar level of patients in the community with type 2 diabetes. A total of 248 patients with type 2 diabetes from 10 communities of Changsha were randomized into intervention or control groups in February 2009. The intervention group received systematic self-management education, while the other received routine community education. Before and after intervention, fasting plasma glucose, 2 h postprandial plasma glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin were measured, and evaluated between the 2 groups. Fasting plasma glucose, 2 h postprandial plasma glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin levels of patients with diabetes from the two groups were generally comparable at baseline (P>0.05). After the intervention, these three indicators were all statistically significant between the 2 groups (P<0.01, P<0.05, P<0.01, respectively). After intervention, blood sugar levels in the intervention group were obviously improved (P<0.01), while in the control group, fasting plasma glucose was not statistically improved (P>0.05), 2 h plasma glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin levels were improved (P<0.01, P<0.05, respectively). Systematic self-management education effectively encourages patients with type 2 diabetes to control their blood sugar levels, and deserves further promotion.

    ABSTRACT: To explore the effect of systematic self-management education on quality of life, anxiety and depression of patients with Type 2 diabetes in communities. A total of 248 patients with Type 2 diabetes from 10 communities of Changsha from February 2009 to July 2010 were randomized into an intervention group and a control group. The intervention group received systematic self-management education, while the controls received routine community education. The quality of life, anxiety and depression were measured by adjusted diabetes-specific quality of life scale (A-DQOL), self-rating anxiety scale (SAS) and self-rating depression scale (SDS) respectively. The quality of life, morbidity of anxiety or depression of the intervention and the control group were comparable at the baseline (P>0.05). One and half year later, there was significant difference between the two groups (P<0.01). Compared with the control group, the intervention group got better quality of life (P<0.01), less morbidity of anxiety (8.94% vs. 44.4%, P<0.01) and depression (23.58% vs. 56.00%, P<0.01). Systematic self-management education can effectively improve the quality of life, reduce the level of anxiety and depression of patients with Type 2 diabetes in communities, which deserves further generalization.
