Abstract

BACKGROUND. Aim of the presents research was a study the interactions between dimensions of health locus of control: internal and external, with a level of glycosylated hemoglobin HbA1c, which reflected metabolic balance individuals with type 1 diabetes. So, it is possible to treat HbA1c as a biological coefficient of adherence to diet demands.
MATERIAL AND METHODS. Sixty two patients with type 1 diabetes were administered and expanded Multidimensional Health Locus of Control - MHLC-B and a personal survey.
RESULTS. Obtained results show that type 1 diabetics have HbA1c over norm. There is correlation between a level of glycosylated hemoglobin and external health of control beliefs - in others or in chance. Persons with a higher level of HbA1c have no complication with ill or they are new diagnosed diabetic.
CONCLUSION. Health locus of control can be an additional component, important in psychoeducation of diabetics, and instrumental in prediction of adherence to diet by people with diabetes type 1.
