Law, G. U. and Kelly, T. P. and Huey, D. and Summerbell, C. (2002) 'Self-management and well-being in adolescents with diabetes mellitus : do illness representations play a regulatory role ?', Journal of adolescent health., 31 (4). pp. 381-385.
This investigation examined the applicability of the self-regulatory model to adolescents with type 1 diabetes. Relationships among illness beliefs, diabetes self-management behaviors, psychological well-being, and blood glucose control were explored in 30 adolescents attending outpatient clinics in the United Kingdom. Correlation and regression analyses indicated that illness beliefs were not related to self-management behaviors, but both were important contributors to psychological well-being.
