The Difference of the Blood Glucose Level before and After Tracking in Diabetic Camp
Abstract: Background: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is one of the most common metabolic diseases in the world, its prevalence has increased in the last decade. The Endocrinology Division of the Department of Child Health (IKA) Faculty of Medicine, Udayana University / Sanglah Hospital Denpasar has a diabetic camp program for diabetics. Its activities range from physical activity to sharing experiences of sufferers and parents with diabetes. Objective: Knowing the difference in average blood glucose levels before and after tracking in the diabetic camp held by the Endocrinology Division of the Department of Child Health Sciences (IKA) Faculty of Medicine, Udayana University / Sanglah Hospital Denpasar. Methods: This research is a cross-sectional study using a analytic design that examines differences in mean blood glucose levels before and after tracking in a diabetic camp. Results: A total of 12 samples that meet the inclusion criteria and did not meet the exclusion criteria were analyzed in this study. The sample age ranges from 1 to 12 years, with an average age of 8.17 years. A total of 9 people were female (75 %). Most had good nutritional status (83.3 %), each of which was only one sample that had undernutrition and over nutrition. All diabetic camp participants did not have a family history of diabetes mellitus. As many as 58.3 % of participants received convensional therapy, and the rest basal bolus therapy. A total of 12 samples were assessed for average blood glucose levels prior to participating in tracking at diabetic camp activities and at the end of the tracking at diabetic camp. The results showed that the mean blood glucose levels after tracking were significantly lower than the mean blood glucose levels before tracking (136.17 mg / L vs 166.67 mg / L, p = 0.000). Conclusion: There was a significant improvement in mean blood glucose levels in children after tracking at the diabetic camp compared to before tracking.
