Background and Objective: Diabetes is a chronic disease that requires acceptance and care. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to increase the knowledge and motivation of patients to take care of themselves. The present study was conducted with the aim of investigating the structural model of self-care based on self-care with the mediation of social support in patients with diabetes.
Materials and Methods: The present research was methodical in terms of structural equation modeling. We used available sampling for selecting 382 patients with diabetes type 2 referred to private diabetes clinics in Tehran in spring and summer of 2021. Research tools included self care questionnaire, Self-transcendence questionnaire (ASTI) and social support questionnaire (SSQ). The data were analyzed by SPSS21 and AMOSE 3 softwares.
Results: The proposed conceptual model approves all model fit indices (such as SRMR GFI, CFI, RMSEA) in an acceptable range to be good. The model had a favorable factor structure and fit. Self transcendence was directly and strongly related to social support and self care. The mediating role of social support was acknowledged.
Conclusion: Improving the self transcendence component is associated with improving social support and promoting self care and can be used as a psychological solution along with medical treatments.
