The SDSCA entails 11 main items and 14 additional items divided into five subdomains measured on a 8 point scale (0-7): (a) diet and dietary choices the last week, 6 items; (b) foot care, 1 item; (c) exercising the last seven days, 2 items; (d) use of SMBG and how SMBG measurements were used to change dietary and exercising behaviour, 6 items. The last 3 items were added to the original scale as some research (Siebolds et al. 2006) has shown that people with type 2 diabetes do not use SMBG measurements to change behaviour.
