This study aims to determine the description of individual perceptions in families who have a profile of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. This research is a quantitative d study with cross sectional design with 120 respondents. Data was taken using demographic data and DHBM (The Diabetes Health Belief Measure) questionnaire.
