Introduction: Diabetes as one of the serious problems in the health system is known as the silent death. An effective way to examine patients with diabetes is to evaluate self-care behaviors. Therefore, the present study aimed to investigate self-care behaviors and related factors in diabetic patients referring to the diabetes clinic in Saravan, Iran, in 2017.

Materials and Methods: The population of this descriptive analytic study consisted of 80 patients with diabetes type 2 referring to the diabetes clinic in Saravan selected by census method. Data were collected through demographic form and self-care behavior questionnaire. Data analysis was performed in SPSS (version 23) using descriptive statistics, independent t-test, and ANOVA.

Result: self-care mean and standard deviation were 37.87±12.03, respectively. The findings showed that patients had low, moderate, and high levels of self-care behaviors (i.e. 62.5%, 32.5%, and 3.8%, respectively). Variables, such as levels of education and job status, correlated directly with self-care behaviors (P<0/05).

Conclusion: The findings showed that the majority of patients indicated a moderate level of self-care. Therefore, it is suggested to improve self-care behavior by offering educational programs to raise the patients’ consciences regarding the importance of self-care behavior in controlling and alleviating the complication of diabetes.
