Patient participation in treatment of disease is one of the most effective factors in the control of disease. The present study aimed to determine Self Care Behaviors of Diabetic Patients.

The questionnaire consists of two parts of demographic characteristics and self care behaviors questions. Data analysis performed using t-test and Pearson correlation test, p<0.05 was considered as statistically significant.

There was a significant relationship between fasting blood glucose and self care (p=0.008), physical activity and fasting blood glucose (p=0.001) level of education and self care (p=0.02).
Conclusion: Considering the result of this study, diabetes is one of the most important and complicated diseases that annually imposes heavy costs on patients.
