The goal of this study is to conduct a scoping evaluation of the global evidence on m-health interventions and toÂ determine the efficacy of mobile based self-management interventions for type 2 diabetes mellitus.
A rigorous search of the PubMed and Scopus research databases was conducted. Studies on Type 2 diabetes conductedÂ in age ranges 18-75 years and published in English worldwide from 2010 to 2020 are included. RandomizedÂ controlled trials (RCTs) using mobile based self-management for type 2 diabetes patients, as well as recording andÂ analysis of results at the patient level, were among the studies. The studies were checked by the reviewer, and theyÂ were then independently reviewed by a second reviewer. The data was extracted, graphed, and the studies’ qualityÂ was evaluated. To deliver study outcomes and 27 recommendations, the scoping study approach employs Arksey andÂ O’Malley’s operational framework. This work is presented using the PRISMA-SCR checklist.
The assessment comprised a total of 40 articles, all of which were RCT-based treatments studies with over 3800Â participants. For this study, 40 original research publications were chosen. The chosen studies mostly focused onÂ type 2 diabetes self-management (N=40) andÂ hypertensionÂ self-management (N=2). The usage of mobile SMS (N=17)Â or mobile on phone (N=12), the content of sessionÂ educationÂ with mobile (N=10) or the placement of mobileÂ devices (N=4) were among the several treatments. The therapies were usually successful, resulting in better glucoseÂ control and improved health indices.
