Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Objective: To explore the impact of an integrated method of coaching and self-hypnosis on the maintenance of blood glucose levels among older adults in Indonesia. Method: The study's design was quasi-experimental with two sample groups: an intervention group and a controlled group. For the sampling method, 76 people were chosen using the multistage sampling method, then the member of the intervention group was chosen based on the study's purpose. This study used a paired t-test and an independent t-test. Non-fasting blood sugar tests (random blood sample) were taken twice, before and after the intervention for 4 weeks. Results: There was a significant difference between blood glucose levels before and after intervention in the intervention group (p = 0.000). Coaching and self-hypnosis method was decreasing blood glucose levels significantly in the intervention group better than in the controlled group. Conclusions: Coaching and self-hypnosis, when sustained for 4 weeks, can decrease blood glucose levels. This intervention can be part of lifestyle modification to decrease the blood glucose levels of older adults with diabetes mellitus. Furthermore, coaching and self-hypnosis intervention can also be integrated as part of the promotion and preventive acts in the prevention and management of non-communicable disease programs in communities.
