Sri Syatriani

Abstract:
Background and Objective: The prevalence of diabetes mellitus continually increases in Indonesia and has shown an ascending trend in the last five years, as indicated in several Indonesian basic health survey reports. It increased from 1.5% in 2010 to 2.1% in 2013 and rose to 5.8% in 2014 and 9.1 million cases in 2015. This study aimed to assess counselling outcomes on the improvement of health-related quality of life (HRQoL) among patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus in the coastal areas of the Makassar municipality. Methodology: The study used a non-randomized pre-test and post-test control group design. The samples assessed in this study were patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who were from the coastal areas of the Makassar municipality, leading to a total sample size of 80 respondents. Data from the sample were processed and analysed using a paired t-test. Results: The results of the assessment indicated that the health intervention involving counselling could improve HRQoL in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. There was a statistically significant difference before and after the intervention in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (p = 0.000). The number of patients affected by type 2 diabetes mellitus showed that poor HRQoL could be improved, as shown by the mean value of 21.77. Conclusion: A health intervention involving counselling could improve HRQoL in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus from the coastal areas of the Makassar municipality.
