dc.description.abstract Adolescent diabetics require lifestyle changes and adaptations. An adaptation to diet is a major adjustment due to dietary restrictions. A healthy lifestyle may be predictive of compliance with diet. The purpose of this study is to examine the predictive relationship of healthy lifestyle and compliance with diet in adolescent diabetics. The study will also explore adolescent's perceptions of benefits and barriers of compliance with diet that may be influential in dietary compliance. The framework used to guide this study is the Health Promotion Model by Nola Pender. The sample will be 40 adolescent diabetics from Riley's Outpatient Diabetic Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Health-Promoting Lifestyle Questionnaire will be used along with a questionnaire to measure barriers and benefits influencing dietary compliance (Bradley et al., 1984. A predictive design will be used. Participants will be attending a diabetes class and keeping a food journal. Permission will be obtained from Ball State University IRB and the participating institution. The identity of participants will be protected and data will remain anonymous. Identifying barriers and benefits that impact compliance with diet may provide information to assist diabetic educators. en_US
