[AIMS] The diabetes illness perception domains outlined by Leventhal&#039;s common-sense model may be weakly associated with hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) and adherence to diabetes self-care behaviors. However, type 2 diabetes patients&#039; illness schemata identified by clustering the illness perception domains remain to be explained. This study aimed to describe type 2 diabetes patients&#039; illness schemata and to examine their association with self-care behaviors and glycemic control in Iran.<br />
[METHODS] A cross-sectional survey was conducted with 200 patients (mean age 59.5±10.3; 70% female) who attended self-management classes at the Iranian Diabetes Society in Tehran. Illness perceptions and self-care behaviors were assessed using the Persian version of the Illness Perception Questionnaire Revised and the Summary of Diabetes Self-Care Activity.<br />
[RESULTS] Three clusters of diabetes illness beliefs were identified: &quot;empowered,&quot; &quot;self-condemned,&quot; and &quot;powerless.&quot; &quot;Empowered&quot; participants adhered most rigorously to general diet, fruit and vegetable intake, and exercise, and had the best glycemic control (HbA1c=7.2%, SD=0.2), followed by &quot;self-condemned&quot; and then &quot;powerless&quot; participants, who had the
