The purpose of this study was to confirm if self-management and self-efficacy of diabetic nephropathy hemodialysis patients were influencing factors on the hemodialysis-related symptoms. A cross-sectional study was performed on 254 patients based at 3 University hospital hemodialysis centers and 7 hemodialysis clinics from September 2017 to November 2017. The data was analyzed using t-test, ANOVA, Scheffe test, Pearson correlation, and multiple regression analysis. The results showed that patients with stable economic condition and no complications from diabetes, the higher patient self-management and self-efficacy led to lower hemodialysis related symptoms. Therefore, the government should provide financial support, a management process needs to be set up to prevent complications from diabetes, and disease-specific patient self-management program should be implemented to increase patient's self-efficacy.
