Objective: TO synthesize the main scientific evidence on the influence of functional literacy on health and numeracy in people with diabetes who perform self-monitoring of capillary glycemia. Method: Systematic review of convergent and segregated mixed methods conducted and developed according to the premises of the Joanna Briggs Institute. A search for published and unpublished studies will be carried out in MEDLINE (PubMed), LILACS, CINAHL, Web of Science, EMBASE, SCOPUS, Cochrane Library (central), Google Scholar, OPENGRAY, and Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD). There will be no language restrictions or time interval of publication. The identified scientific documents will be organized with the help of EndNote and repeated documents will be deleted, keeping only one version. Selection will take place through analysis of independent reviewers, who will critically analyze and evaluate the selected studies and extract data using standardized instruments with the help of Rayyan software. The results of the review will be reported according to the PRISMA guidelines. Registration number on PROSPERO platform: CRD42023408045
