Abstract

This study utilized a non-experimental descriptive type of research. The respondents of the study were composed of 100 diabetic amputees in selected areas in Cavite, Laguna and Batangas. Respondents were chosen using non-probability snowball sampling. The research tool used for data gathering was adapted from Dr. Morris Rosenberg’s Self-Esteem Scale (sociology Department of University of Maryland, 2013). Data was analysed using percentage, mean, t-test, and f-test. The study concluded the following: (1) majority of the respondents were males, 40 to 64 years old, Catholics, married, unemployed, high school graduates, who had been amputated in the lower limb, supported by family and relatives and had undergone amputation for the past 1 year and above; (2) the impact of amputation on the physical aspect, social aspect, psychoemotional aspect, and spiritual aspect resulted to a very low impact on the self-esteem among diabetic clients; (3) there were no significant differences on the impact of amputation on the level of self-esteem of diabetic clients when grouped according to gender, religion, civil status, employment status, amputated part of the body, support system, and length of time being an amputee. However, in terms of age and educational attainment, there was a significant difference in the impact of amputation on the level of self-esteem of diabetic clients.
