dc.description.abstractType 2 diabetes mellitus is a risk factor for developing dementia and a public health concern around the world. Identifying any predictive factors associated with diabetes-related dementia prevention behaviors are of value in helping to prevent dementia. From six community hospitals in Chiang Mai, Thailand, 182 people aged 30–60 years were enrolled in a cross-sectional study and completed a written questionnaire on dementia prevention behaviors and perceptions of health beliefs. Multiple linear regression analysis was applied to determine possible associations between dementia prevention behaviors and health belief perceptions. A high level of preventive behavior was associated with high perceptions of the benefits of, and barriers to, dementia prevention and longer duration of patients' diabetes. Findings indicate the predictive role of the two factors in the perception of health beliefs about dementia prevention behaviors among the participants. Although further testing with different samples and in different locations is warranted, education programs for health practitioners that integrate the findings of this study would be beneficial to improvement of dementia prevention behaviors in people with diabetes.en_US
