Our study emphasizes that T2DM outpatients do not only need attention on getting the adequate medicines. The Indonesian T2DM outpatients also need attention to psychological aspects, like knowledge of T2DM and the changing system of services for T2DM outpatients, such as the changing context of health insurance in Indonesia. Our study also recommends special care to lower educated T2DM outpatients and housewives with T2DM, like special programs assigned to these two groups. Knowledge of T2DM is not just necessary for T2DM patients, but also for the family members, because they are the ones who know most about the health conditions of the T2DM patients.
