Abstract

Introduction: Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a hyperglycemia condition caused by inadequate insulin, insulin action, or both. Clients experience foot injuries that have serious complications and affect the lower extremities. The purpose of this study was to identify the relationship between sensory neuropathy and self-efficacy with the level of diabetic foot wounds. Method: This research design is cross sectional and data are collected using a cluster sampling technique. The population of the study were 63 diabetic patients who suffered diabetic foot injuries. Data analysis was conducted using the Spearman rho statistical test with a significance level p <0.05. Results: the result was p = 0.027, which means there is a correlation between sensory neuropathy and self-efficacy with levels of diabetic foot wound at p = 0.000 with r = -0.681, which means there is a strong correlation of negative direction or crosses. Conclusions: Most respondents had positive sensory neuropathy, the self-efficacy of respondents was moderate, and the level of diabetic foot injuries was the highest at level 1. The support from a patient’s family was beneficial in improving self-efficacy and was instrumental in increasing the patient's confidence in controlling behavior and adapting to the conditions experienced.
