  This study examined the correlation between socio-demographic characteristics, health beliefs and diabetes management using the main concepts of Health Belief Model among the Igala, Nigeria and also examined the role of these variables in predicting diabetes management. Data were collected using structured questionnaire administered on 152 respondents with diabetes. The data were analyzed using SPSS. Age (-0.301, p<0.000), household size (-0.233, p<0.004), place of residence (-0.199, p<0.014) all had negative correlations with diabetes management. There was a moderate correlation between perceived severity (0.583, p<0.000), weak and negative correlation between perceived benefits (-0.210, p<0.009), weak correlation between perceived barriers (193, p<0.017) and weak correlation between aggregate HBM (195, p<0.016) and diabetes management. The aggregate HBM would predict diabetes management (β = 0.159, p<0.000) after controlling for socio-demographic variables, diabetes knowledge and perception. Though health belief is a factor in predicting diabetes management, this should not be considered in isolation of other social factors.
