Objectives: Diabetes mellitus is still a problem in the world today, including Indonesia because of the complications it causes. Various forms of health programs were launched to overcome them, one of which was prolanis with the aim of improving the self-management and quality of life of patients. The purpose of the study is to identify self management effect in mediating the relationship of diabetes mellitus patients’ activeness in prolanis with their quality of life. Methods: This is a analytical study with a cross sectional design. The data was collected on May 20 to June 3, 2018, using the WHOQOL-BREF questionnaire to 52 respondents. The data were analyzed using path analysis based on linear regression. Results: Results showed that 68% of respondents have good quality of life are those who actively participate in prolanis, 91% of respondents who have a good quality of life are those who have good self-management. According to the path value between the respondents activeness with their quality of life directly was 0.364 (P1=0.364), the relationship between the respondents activeness with their self management was 0.438 (P2=0.438), and the path value between respondents self management with their quality of life directly is 0.355 (P3=0.355). The amount of indirect effect is 0.438 x 0.355 = 0.155 (0.155<0.364) thus the indirect relationship coefficient is still smaller than the direct relationship. Conclusions: The study prove that self-management does not have the ability to mediate the relationship of diabetes mellitus patients activeness in prolanis with their quality of life, or self-management is not a mediator factor but a factor that directly contributes to the quality of life of patients.
