Diabetes affects millions of people in the United States. The disease is a major source of medical complication of various organs and systems. The country expends a considerable amount of dollars to manage these disease-related medical complications, which are related to poor glycemic control. Achievement of better glycemic control may be accomplished with diabetes self-care management. However, to engage in diabetes self-care, individuals with diabetes must acquire capabilities for self-care (self-care agency) and beliefs in their capabilities (self-efficacy) for the performance of specific diabetes self-care activities. Thus, this study was designed to further examine the relationships among these factors. A cross-sectional model testing design was used for secondary analysis of data obtained during a larger study conducted by one of the researchers. A convenience sample or 141 insulin-requiring adults participated in the study. Descriptive statistics and multiple hierarchical regressions were used to analyze the data. Individuals with greater self-efficacy and self-care agency performed more diabetes self-care activities, which led to better glycemic control. [Poster Presentation]
