Abstract

The purpose of this study was to lend further support to the practice-based theory multigenerational legacies of diabetes (MGLDM). The hypothesis that perceptions of diabetes differ depending upon self-reported family history of diabetes was tested. Surveys assessing illness representation were administered by mail to adults with type 2 diabetes who attended diabetes education programs in a Northern Metropolitan East Coast location. Perceptions of diabetes were significantly different between those who remember a family member having diabetes and those who do not. Components of the commonsense model that differ in this sample were personal control, treatment control, emotional representations, and illness coherence (understanding), which were associated with dietary and monitoring adherence. Exploring commonsense models of diabetes during education sessions may help identify perceptions that may be shaped by the experiences of family members.
