Across the Worldwide, the prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) is rising significantly. Continuing diabetes mellitus (DM) treatment allows both patients and family members to undergo appropriate self-management instruction and support. This study aimed to review and describe the effect of self-management education for diabetes mellitus (DSME) involving close relatives on patient outcomes associated with patient health habits and perceived self-efficacy on self-management, such as medication adherence, tracking blood glucose, improvements in diet and exercise, health outcomes including psychological well-being and self-efficacy, and physiological indicators like body mass index. Three databases, PubMed, CINAHL, and Scopus, have been reviewed for relevant articles.
