Abstract : Objectives: The increasing prevalence of diabetes has become a challenge for global health professionals. Health coaching is one of the approaches used in self-management in diabetes patients. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of health coaching on 3 and 6 months of glycemic control in people with type 2 diabetes. Methods: This literature study was conducted in a randomized controlled trial design that used health coaching interventions in people with type 2 diabetes, while the control group used usual care. The electronic databases used were PROQUEST, SAGE, WILLEY and CINAHL published between January 2010 and December 2020. The outcome measured was the effect of intervention on changes in HbA1c levels at 3 and 6 months from the baseline. Results: We found 5 selected articles of the 72 articles that were screened, of these 5 articles 3 articles had low bias and 2 articles had some concern. Health coaching intervention had a significant effect on decreasing HbA1c levels at 3 and 6 months compared to usual care. The health coaching method used uses face to face, telephone, text or a combination. Coaching can be carried out by health professionals or peers who have been trained. Conclusions :Health coaching is an effective approach to glucose control in type 2 diabetes patients.
