Samples were selected among patients with inclusion criteria by a gradual sampling.

Results: The mean and standard deviation of self- care score was 44.26±13.13 which only 4.4% of patients had desirable self-care behavior. Most desirable Status of self-care was related to the subscale of self-care management. There was a significant relationship between self-care with age (p<0.0001), marital status (p=0.003), education (p<0.0001), and the status of comorbidities (p<0.0001).
