The purpose

It is hypothesized that the use of the mobile phone-based self-help system FTA, and with the patients as active players, will improve diabetes self-management reflected by improved glycemic control and lipids, self-care behaviours and lifestyle changes such as improved dietary habits and increased physical activity, compared with usual care. Following this; it is also hypothesized that this will also lead to a reduction in overall risk for diabetes complications (expressed by reduction in e.g., 5 year absolute risk for coronary artery disease as calculated using the Swedish National Diabetes Register's risk calculator) and in the prevalence of the metabolic syndrome (e.g., as defined by the International Diabetes Federation). It also hypothesized that health counselling based on TTM and CBT by a diabetes nurse, and with individualized feedback via sms from the diabetes nurse, may have an important function as a supplement to the self-help system (FTA). In addition, it is hypothesized that the patients' health status and diabetes-related quality of life (HRQL) will improve. The results of this study may show that a commonly used tool like the mobile phone, and also mobile phone together with health counselling, fitted into the patients' daily life, is more effective and cost-effective than standard care.
