Abstract

Multiple and complex healthĝ€"illness transitions are required for successful diabetes self-management. Diabetes healthĝ€ "illness transitions influence the daily lives and interactions of Mexican immigrant women with diabetes. This article reports the findings from an intervention study designed to facilitate the healthĝ€"illness transition in Mexican immigrant women with type 2 diabetes who reside in the Arizona-Sonora region of the USĝ€"Mexico border. There was a significant (P < 0.001) increase from preintervention to postintervention in diabetes knowledge and diabetes self-efficacy and a significant decrease (P ĝ‰Currency sign 0.001) in psychosocial and health-related behavior problems.
