  Background and Aim: Diabetes is a common and costly disease. Given the high prevalence of the disease and the importance of long-term follow-up of patients , there should be an inexpensive method available to clients . Thus, this study aimed at determining the effect of telenursing on glycosylated hemoglobin and anthropometric indexes in diabetic patients.

  Materials and Methods: In this clinical trial study, 64 patients with type 2 diabetes were included, and they were divided randomly into two groups (33 in the case group, and 31 in the control group). The data were collected through laboratory tests and demographic information forms. All patients were trained before the study. However, the case group had phone call follow-ups for 12 weeks. Before and 12 weeks after the start of the study, glycosylated hemoglobin and anthropometric indices were evaluated. The data were analyzed with paired t-test, i ndependent t-test and Chi-Square test using SPSS (version 17).

  Results: Results showed that in the case group, statistical differences between glycosylated hemoglobin and body mass index means before and after interventions were significant (P < 0.05), but insignificant in the control group (P > 0.05). There was no significant difference between the ratio of waist to hip in case and control groups before and after the intervention (P =0.7 and P =0.4 respectively).

  Conclusion: According to research findings , it seems that telenursing , as a follow-up, can improve glycemic .
