Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: For an efficient disease management and prevention of the development of complication, diabetic individuals are expected to establish a new life style right from the diagnosis. The perception of risk related to the disease has importance in the adaptation of the diabetic individuals to the new life style. The research is conducted to identify the perception of risk related to complications and it’s relation with metabolic parameters in diabetic individuals.
Materials and Methods: This descriptive research was conducted in 237 diabetic individuals applied to a Diabetes Polyclinic of a university hospital. The data was acquired by patient identification form, The Risk Perception Survey–Diabetes Mellitus Scale and metabolic control variables form.
Results: Individuals’ knowledge of the risk related to diabetic complications are at a good level while the perceived risk level is high. It is particularly confirmed that individuals perceive complications such as heart attack, high blood pressure and vision problems risky at a higher level. A positive correlation is established between the period of disease and risk knowledge, HbA1c level and worry, and fasting blood sugar and risk perception (p0.01).
Conclusion: In the study, it is determined that, despite the high level of risk knowledge related to complications, the diabetic management of individuals is not enough while the risk perception is high. It is confirmed that the risk perception of metabolic parameters is especially related to worry level.

Keywords: Complications; diabetes mellitus; HbA1c risk perception
