This study investigated the association between self-efficacy, age, BMI and the differences in diabetes/non-diabetes, family history of diabetes/no history, and education level in health value, general health, satisfaction with life happiness. 87 participants completed an online questionnaire comprising of the following questionnaires: The General Self-efficacy Scale, the Health Value Scale, Multi-dimensional Health Locus of Control, The General Health Questionnaire, Satisfaction with life and 5 questions from the Quality of Life Index G3. The analyses found correlations between self-efficacy and health value, general health, satisfaction with life and happiness and found differences between diabetes/non-diabetes and education level in levels of health value. Risk factors for T2D and self-efficacy do not influence health behaviour. Author keywords: self-efficacy, diabetes
