Abstract

Background: The prevalence and complications of type2 diabetes showed that traditional educations are not effective. In this trial, we evaluated the effect of electronic self-care education and continue case in compare to the traditional training methods on the practice and fasting blood sugar of diabetic patients.

Methods: 170 type 2 diabetic patients were randomly allocated into two groups and followed for three months. The control group received routine follow up and the intervention group received electronic education plus routine follow up. The baseline and post-follow-up FBS, BMI and Practice score were collected and analyzed based on intention to treat protocol.

Results: The baseline and post-intervention practice score was 24.1 ± 7.1 vs. 32.2 ± 6.5 for the intervention and 24.5±11.6 vs. 25.4±6.3 for the control group. The mean FBS before and after education was 223.8± 77/2 vs. 167/5 ± 55/2 mg/dl in intervention and 175.2±76.5 vs. 208.3±76.5 mg/dl in control group. BMI decreased 1.23 kg/m2 in intervention group while its increased 0.55 kg/m2 in the control group (P<0.05)

Conclusion: Electronic self-care education and continues care improved the practice, mean FBS and BMI of type 2 diabetic patients in the intervention group after training program.
