  Introduction : The attitude of chronic patients towards the present time and future is one of the important factors in their loyalty to remedial diets. The purpose of this study is to determine the relationship between Expectationism and Self-Care Behaviors in Type II Diabetes Patients.

 Method: This is a descriptive cross-sectional study in which convenient sampling is used to investigate expectationism and self-care behavior among 214 type II diabetics (30-55 years old) in Isfahan Glands and Metabolism Research Center. The “Time Horizon Questionnaire” and “self-care Inventory” were used. The data was analyzed by estimating correlation coefficient, multivariate regression and analysis of variance.

 Results: The results show an increase in self-care behaviors when patients more attention to future and planning for the future. (r=.67, r=.60, sig=0). There was a negative and significant correlation between perceived value of the present time and loyalty to self-care behaviors (r=-.43, sig=0). Findings also indicate that there was a positive relationship between age and loyalty to self-care behaviors. However, no correlation was observed between gender, education, duration of the disease and loyalty to self-care behaviors.

 Conclusion: Perceived value of the present time and future can affect type II diabetes patients' loyalty to self-care behaviors.
