Abstract

Diabetes Mellitus (DM) patients need to have sufficient knowledge about the disease to regulate the diet. However, many people with DM still break the diet rules although the doctors have explained the disease. This study aims to analyze whether family support acts as moderator variable in the relationship between knowledge and DM dietary compliance in a district of Garut. Garut district is located in West Java Province and has a high number of DM patients and embraces a strong Sundanese culture with strong family’s bond. This research used quantitative method with data collected from 32 people with DM in Garut regency. Multiple Regression Analysis (MRA) used to analyze data. The results of this study indicate that both knowledge of disease and family support were able to tend diabetic dietary compliance partially, but family support increased the tendency significantly (p <0.05). Thus, family support moderated the relationship between knowledge of disease and DM dietary compliance. The culture of family’s bond namely silih asah, asih, asuh wrapped in the community needs to be more widely socialized to increase dietary compliance people with DM.
