Blurb/Shorttext:
This excellent book shows that the prevalence of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) is increasing globally. The incidence of this lifelong chronic metabolic disorder is rising at an alarmingly rapid pace in my country, and as a Hospital Nursing Director, my work has been concerned with coordinating, planning, and directing the overall clinical nursing practices, which include managing such conditions. Adherence to self-care activities along with adopting a healthy lifestyle represents the cornerstone of T2DM management. This book, thus, aims to investigate the extent to which healthcare professionals and social support act as determinants of self-care among adults diagnosed with T2DM. Poor adherence to diabetes self-care activities may lead to a heightened incidence of uncontrolled T2DM among patients. Culture and Religion, Gender, Stigma, Social Support, and Healthcare Environment all influenced adult diabetes adherence to self-care activities. This book establishes that the successful management of T2DM is dependent on support from family, spouses, friends, and healthcare professionals. This study uses a concurrent triangulation design.
