Patient education is critical for the regulation of Type II Diabetes. This study evaluated 39 adults ≥ 40 years old with T2D and a HgbA1c level of ≥ 7.0%, including 27 women and 12 men aged 40 to 74. The participants were divided into two separate groups. The first group (19) diagnosed with T2D had no formal disease management education but were given videos on diabetes education to watch alone. The second group (202) was given family-inclusion diabetes education through videos. The hypothesis was that individuals who watched educational videos with family would have a more significant HgbA1c decrease than participants who watched the educational videos alone. The Diabetes Self-Management Questionnaire (DSMQ) was utilized to measure the understanding of diabetes and self-care modalities by the study participants at baseline, one month after education. After the education intervention, the patient's fasting glucose level is also drawn and evaluated at one month. Only three people returned the DSMQ data. Thus, the information on diabetes understanding could not be interpreted. However, the glycated hemoglobin (HgbA1c) was drawn 3 months after the baseline level, showing an overall decrease in fasting glucose and HgbA1c levels. However, there was no statistically significant difference between members who watched the videos alone and those who watched the videos with a family member. Therefore, the null hypothesis could not be accepted with the data collected.
