With increasing elderly living with diabetes, health professionals have focused on the relations between behaviours improving health status and life satisfaction. This research attempts to explain the influence of the health promotion behaviours on the life satisfaction of the elderly with diabetes. Also, we are studying whether there is a mediating effect of depression between health promotion behaviours and life satisfaction of the elderly with diabetes. 685 persons with diabetes over 60 years of age were selected from the data of KLoSA (Korean Longitudinal Study of Ageing), administered by The National lnstitute of Labor in 2006. Life satisfaction was measured by 5 items: health status, economic status, relationship with a spouse, relationship with children, and the quality of life.
