DM is a silent killer disease characterized by increased blood glucose levels and failure of insulin secretion or use of insulin in an inadequate metabolism that can cause peripheral circulation problems called neuropathy. It is estimated that in 2030 the incidence of DM will increase by approximately 78% (WHO, 2014). In 2015 Indonesia ranked the sixth highest rate of DM sufferers. The prevalence of DM in West Java was around 1.3% of the total national prevalence of 1.5%. The number of diabetic patients in X District General Hospital Cirebon continues to increase every year. Data obtained in 2016 showed that there were 316 patients with DM and 19 people died due to DM and from January to August 2017 there were 376 patients who were recorded undergoing inpatient and 1123 patients who were recorded undergoing outpatient and 27 people were declared dead. The number of amputations during 2017 was 64. Based on the phenomena that occurred at X District General Hospital Cirebon, there is a need for self-care measures as the effort of health promotion and prevention of DM complications such as neuropathy, diabetic ulcers to amputation in the form of education and foot exercise intervention.
