Abstract

EVALUATION OF CURRENT HEALTH SATISFACTION IN PEOPLE WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS

Sivapriya T*. and Dr. Sheila John

ABSTRACT

Background: Health satisfaction is crucial as it is the key element of patient-centred care and is not the same as treatment satisfaction because it considers issues that are not specifically related to treatment. Low levels of health satisfaction in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus may negatively influence self-care behaviours and treatment outcomes. Objective: To evaluate the Current Health Satisfaction among type 2 diabetes patients using a Questionnaire (CHES-Q) designed to assess diabetes-related health satisfaction and knowledge about the disease. Methodology: This study evaluated the Current Health Satisfaction among hundred type 2 diabetes patients using (CHES-Q) instrument containing 14 items, designed to assess diabetes-related health satisfaction. Results: For physical health satisfaction, the subjects scored an average of 3.01± 1.35 out of 6 marks. The score achieved by the subjects for emotional health satisfaction upon 3 was 0.575±0.82. Inspite of diet counselling the knowledge score was 1.52±0.719 out of 5. Conclusion: If preventive measures like therapeutic interventions, diet counselling, weight management could postpone or prevent obesity, insulin use, and complications, significant health satisfactions could be attained.

Keywords: Type 2 diabetes, Health satisfaction, Patient outcome measures.
