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.
