  Background and Aim: Diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases and also the greatest health problem in all countries. The most important strategy to control chronic diseases is self-care behaviors. Thus, the present study was implemented to determine self-care capacity among diabetic patients.

  Materials and Methods: In this descriptive cross-sectional study, 92 diabetic patients aged 20- 65 years, were selected from the Imam Khomeini hospitals of Ardebil and studied within a month in winter 2009. The necessary data was collected through interview by using the Summary of Diabetes Self-Care Activities Scale (SDSCA) .

  Results: Self-care rate among the subjects was weak. Factors such as type of diabetes (P=0.02), residence (P=0.01), age (P=0.01), education level (P=0.01), and instruction history (P=0.02) had a significant relationships with self-care capacity.

  Conclusion: Self-care capacity of diabetic individuals was weak, therefore given the crucial role of self care behaviores to control diabetes, nurses are required to identify help-seekers' need while performing nursing interventions and investigating self-care behaviors and design and implement planned training to promote self-care ability among patients.
