Introduction: This study investigates the influence of avoidance cognition on self-care behaviors and satisfaction in type 2 diabetes patients.
Method: Fifty-five outpatients with type 2 diabetes were recruited from a hospital in Tokyo. The measures used in this study were (1) Acceptance and Action Diabetes Questionnaire, (2) The Summary of Diabetes Self-Care Activities Measure, (3) Diabetes Treatment Satisfaction Questionnaire.
Results: Patient demographic characteristics are as follows: men N = 38, women N = 17, insulin therapy patients N = 31, and HbA1c level was= 7.01% ± 0.79%. Hierarchical multiple regression analyses showed that avoidance cognition affected diet therapy as a component of diabetes self-care behaviors (β = -.36, p < .01). However, satisfaction of diabetes treatment did not significantly affect. (β=-.04, n.s.)
Discussion: It is effective in order that the intervention which changes the avoidance cognition to diabetes medical treatment may raise the adherence of a patient's dietary therapy.
