Tlxe goal of this study was to identify the level of mother involvement in children type-l Diabetes Mellitus management, to identify factors related with mother involvement and to determine the relationships between mother involvement and glycemic control. A cross-sectional study was carried out with 92 respondents selected by universal sampling from mothers who had diabetic children aged 5-15 years old and from medical visit appointment at University Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre (UKMMC) and Putrajaya Hospital (HP]). Data was obtained through medical record and self-reporting questionnaire. The study shown that 58.6% mothers had high involvement and 41.4% mothers had low involvement. Mothers' education level had a significant (p=0.02) relationship with a level of mother involvement. Most mothers gave high involvement in diet management (64.1%) and blood glucose monitoring (52.7%), however most mothers gave low involvement in exercise management (63.0%) and insulin injection (60.9%). Mothers involvement in four management tasks were not statistically significant (p>0.05) with glycemic control. Mothers involvement in children diabetic management was high. There was high mother involvement in children's insulin injection and dietary intake and low mother involvement in children's blood glucose monitoring and exercise. This study also showed that there was no significant relationship between level of mother involvement and glycemic control.
