Abstract

Introduction: Nowadays, there is a controversy regarding the efficacy of different educational methods on controlling of blood glucose in diabetic patients. This study was performed with aim to assess the effect of education thorough short massage system on blood glucose control of prediabetic pregnant women. Methods: This clinical randomized trial was performed on 100 prediabetic pregnant women who referred to the selected health centers of Ahvaz in 2016. Women were randomly assigned into intervention and control groups equally. The control group received face to face education and intervention group received short massage in addition to face to face education. In both groups, fasting blood glucose (FBG) was evaluated before (between 12-14 gestational weeks) and after the education (between 24-26 gestational weeks) and oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) was assessed after the education. Data were analyzed using SPSS software (version 20) and Chi-square and independent t and paired t-tests. P<0.5 was considered significant. Results: There was not statistically significant difference between two groups regarding to FBG and 1-hour and 2-hour OGTT after the intervention (P>0.05), but after intervention, the blood glucose level in intervention group was lower than that in control group. Based on paired t-test, there was not statistically significant difference between two groups regarding to FBG before and after the intervention (P< 0.001). Conclusion: Both methods of education through short message system and face to face education have similar effect and can decrease the blood glucose in prediabetic pregnant women; however, the effect was more observed in the group of education through short message system.
