Abstract
To test the hypothesis that family function differs in diabetic patients according to their level of glycemic control, family function was assessed using the Family Adaptability & Cohesion Evaluation Scales Ⅲ(FACESⅢ) questionnaire.
From June to August, 1990, 57 patients with adult-onset diabetes mellitus(Type Ⅱ NIDDM) to be diagnosed and managed for more than 6 months in the Youngdong Severance Hospital were randomly selected. The patients were divided into three groups(good, fair, poor) according to the level of their glycemic control which was obtained in the clinic visits during the 6 months before the date of the assessment of family function.
The results were as follows:
1. There was no statistically significant difference in the state of glycemic control when related to age, duration of diabetes, income, and marital status ; however, there was a statistically significant difference in the state of glycemic control when related to enforcement through diet therapy.
2. In the cohesion according to the level of glycemic control, separated and connected types were more common in the good and fair control groups than in the poor control group, and disengaged type was more common in the poor control group than in the good and fair control groups. This result was statistically significant.
3. In the adaptability according to the level of glycemic control, structured and flexible types were more common in the good and fair control groups than in the poor control group and chaotic type was more in the poor control group than the good and fair control groups.
This was not statistically significant.
4. In the family types according to the level of glycemic control, the relatively more extreme family type was effected more significantly in the poor control group than in the good and fair control groups.
