Abstract

Young Adults with diabetes mellitus suffer from low blood sugar levels due to the influences of their personal and social environments. In addition, they experience a constantly declining motivation, causing them to experience burn-out and eventually lose their quality of life. Considering this, diabetic education should be able to understand and take into account the characteristics of young adult patients while implementing various different approaches.
