Abstract

Abstract:
Objective: To study the effectiveness of a self-management programme, monitored using the LINE application, in the eating behaviour, arm-swing exercise behaviour, and blood glucose levels in women with gestational diabetes mellitus.
Design: Two-group quasi-experimental research with a pre-test and a post-test.
Methodology: The sample consisted of 78 women with gestational diabetes mellitus who were examined at Thammasat Hospital. The participants were recruited via the purposive sampling method and equally divided into a control group and an experimental group. The experiment was conducted between August and December 2018. The experimental group participated in the self-management programme and was given education on gestational diabetes mellitus, diet control, arm-swing exercise, self-monitoring activities, self-evaluation activities, and self-reinforcement. During the programme, the participants were monitored through the LINE application. The control group, on the other hand, received standard care. The data-collecting instruments consisted of 1) an eating behaviour questionnaire; 2) an arm-swing exercise
behaviour questionnaire; and 3) measuring of the blood glucose levels. The data were analysed
using frequency distribution, percentage, Chi-square test, T-test statistics, and an analysis of covariance.
Results: At the gestational age of 36 weeks, the experimental group and control group displayed statistically signifcant differences in their average eating behaviour, arm-swing exercise behaviour, and fasting blood glucose level scores.
Recommendations: The midwives should bring Self-Management Programming and The LINE Application Tracking to take care of women with gestational diabetes mellitus, so that they can control blood glucose levels.
