Abstract

Self-care practices and glycaemic control remain suboptimal among young adults with diabetes. One of the known factors to influence self-care behaviours is health beliefs. Targeting health beliefs through diabetes education facilitates individual’s diabetes self-care behaviours. Studies investigating health beliefs of young adults with diabetes are limited, however, to educational settings and include mixed-age participant groups. Knowledge about the health beliefs, self-care practices and glycaemic control specifically among Malaysian young adults with diabetes is lacking.
