Abstract

The purpose of this predictive research was to study the factors predicting of prevention pulmonary tuberculosis in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus in the northeastern region of Thailand. The sample consisted of 1,218 TB patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Data were collected using questionnaires. Analyze the data with descriptive statistics. Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression statistics 𝑥̅=72.55, S.D. = 8.62). Factors associated with TB prevention behavior (r = 0.791). Factors associated with TB prevention behaviors were perceived benefits of TB (r = 0.758), perceived barriers of TB (r = 0.235),perceived susceptibility of TB (r = 0.453), induced health motivationof TB prevention (r = 0.781), exposure. Know the benefits of TB prevention (r = 0.769) and the relationship to the patient (r = -0.736). The co-parenting variable predicted 60.80% of TB prevention behaviors (R2 = .608, F = 0.019, p< 0.001). The predictable factor was perceived barrier of TB infection (ß = .235, p<0.001) and health motivation of TB infection (ß = 0.453, p<0.001). The findings could lead to the development of care with an emphasis on recognizing risk factors for TB infection and providing recommendations for pulmonary tuberculosis prevention in diabetic patients.
