The purpose of this study to determine predictors of walking behavior in patients with type 2 diabetes in Yazd based on Health Belief Model. Methods: In this cross-sectional study on 111 type 2 diabetes patients referring to Yazd Diabetes Center were selected randomly. Data collecting was done by a questionnaire with health belief model structures (knowledge, perceived susceptibility, severity, benefits, barriers, self efficacy & cues to action) and demographic variables and questions regarding walking behaviors. Reliability and validity were assessed and were approved. Ddata analyzed were using the spssSPSS software and making descriptive statistics, the correlation coefficient and regression testes. Findings: 111 individuals with type 2 diabetes of both sexes (78 females and 33 males) with mean age of 44.7 ± 18.49 were participated in this study. the mMean score of knowledge and walking behavior were, 6.93 ± 3.22 and 4.46 ± 3.73, respectively that showed subjects had acquired only 43.12% of knowledge maximum score knowledge and 31.85% of the walking behavior maximum score walking behavior. The Findings showed that there was a significant relationship between walking behavior with knowledge, & behavior with perceived severity and& behavior with  perceived benefits.  Conclusion: According to this study behavior of walking was weak. & It seems that the use of theoretical based models such as Health Belief Model can be used effective on to predict weakness of walking and as a framework can be used for the implementation of educational interventions to control diabetes.
