Objective: This study aims to analyse the associated factors with self-management behaviour in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients. Method: The study used a cross-sectional approach with a total sample of 115 T2DM patients in Sidrap Regency, South Sulawesi, selected through multistage random sampling. Data were analysed with Chi-Square test and logistic regression. Results: Respondents with good self-management knowledge were 94 times more likely to manage the disease (Ex(b) = 94.26), and those with good self-efficacy were 54 times more likely to practice good self-management behaviour. Conclusion: Factors greatly affecting self-management are knowledge, self-efficacy, and family support. Self-management can also prevent complications.
