The one marathon that is about you

The value of the self-care management lends itself to promoting education on preventing complications and on the transmission of information or skills. Every person bound by behavioral characteristics, cultural traditions, and health care beliefs are inbuilt in the mantra (key to success) for a better quality of life. We advocate for diversity in the best way so that people well informed make the right choices. It creates a delicate balance of the right judgment, energy, and vigor without the hassles of monitoring and taking medications. It is about fashioning a balance of healthy eating, activity, and mindfulness. There is a longstanding recognition of lifestyle factors, behavioral, environmental and societal- playing a critical part in the prevention of diabetes mellitus (DM) and its complications. Lifestyles influence psychosocial factors and commitment to new skills and adherence to making the changes in a persons’ behavior. This also depends on the willingness, psychosocial aspects, self -efficacy and outcome expectations which are motivating factors. Example, running 100 miles speaks volumes about the kind of energy and stamina for strength and conditioning the body and reducing the risks of poor blood circulation and cell metabolism. Ethnocultural diversity, social supports, positive attitudes towards DM can affect self-care and glycemic control.

Empowering a person provides them with the necessary knowledge, skills, and responsibility to effect change that has the potential to promote overall health and maximize the use of available resources. Boosting self-efficacy, reflection, and behavioral change is a critical step in promoting active self-management. Self-efficacy and health literacy influence glycemic control through the mediation of self-care behaviors in adults with DM. Enhancing self-efficacy requires an empowerment and collaborative approach that emphasizes person-centered care and well-informed choices. In turn, poor adherence attenuates optimum expected outcomes and therefore reduces the overall effectiveness of health systems. These findings contribute to the body of knowledge to inform adults about the importance of diet adherence, better nutritional choices, and reducing complications. In the future, more research needed to develop effective tools, interventions, and strategies to promote optimal management among adults with DM. Hence, researchers need to study the concept of diversity using a comprehensive and multifactorial approach to providing a better quality of care among adults with DM.
