Background & Objectives: Self-care is a process, which is performed by the
patients for the prevention of short- and long-term complications. This study
aimed to examine the barriers of self-care behavior in the patients afflicted with
diabetes mellitus type II.
Materials & Methods: This descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted
on 131 diabetic patients refferring to Toba and Mostafavian subspecialty clinics,
using random sampling technique. The data were collected by a researcher-made
questionnaire rated on a Likert scale. Data analysis was performed using the
descriptive and analytic statistics through the SPSS version 20.
Results: The mean age of the patients was 55.62 years, including 55 males
(43.1%) and 74 females (56.9%). The identified self-care barriers included
physical (50.5%), educational (50%), economic (42.5%), psychological (32.3%),
and social (31.75%) barriers. Furthermore, there was no significant relationship
between the self-care barriers with the demographic characteristics (i.e., age,
gender, and occupation) of the patients (P=0.05).
Conclusion: Regarding the efficiency of the self-care and the identified barriers, it
is recommended to plan and design interventions targetted toward the prevention
