ABSTRACT

Some diabetes patients differ whether to reject or accept preventive health services or healthy living techniques. The health belief model theory asserts that there is a high probability that an individual will respond to messages concerning disease prevention and health promotion when there exist certain four conditions. The first condition is when that individual believes that he is at risk of developing a specific condition. This is also possible when the individual believes that there exist serious risks and consequences upon developing the said conditions. An additional aspect is the existence of a belief that it is possible to reduce the risk through a specific behavioral change. Finally, if the individual believes that it is possible to manage and overcome barriers to behavior change.
