Abstract

Objective: To analyze nursing care of hopelessness influenced by type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. Methods: All data included in the final analysis was collected from a patient with type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in 12 days. The analysis in hopelessness intervention is later found to be related to the progress in physical problems, such as unstable blood glucose level and impaired skin integrity. Results: Hopelessness in the client with type 2 Diabetes Mellitus may occur as a result of lifestyle changes, chronic illness status, and medication therapy. The hopelessness can affect the blood glucose level and the duration of wound healing. Therefore, type 2 Diabetes Mellitus with hopelessness problems may require an extended hospital stay with intensive nursing care included. Conclusion: The present study found that the psychosocial problems of hopelessness may induce unstable blood glucose levels and impaired skin integrity problems as a result of complications of type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.
