DOI : 10.23893/1307-2080.APS6214 The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between healthy lifestyle behaviors and risk of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus of students, and also to compare the sub-dimensions of Healthy Living-Style Behaviors Scale-? (HLBS-II) with the anthropometry and general characteristics. Socio-demographic form, HLBS-II and The Finnish Diabetes Risk Score (FINDRISC) were used and anthropometric measurements were taken. With the increase in waist/height ratio, physical activity sub-dimension of HLBS-II was affected (p<0.05). The medical check-up status effected every sub-dimension and the total score of HLBS-II (p<0.001). With the increase in waist/hip ratio of female students, FINDRISC also increased (p<0.001). As the waist/height ratio increased, the mean scores of FINDRISC also increased (p<0.001). Students with a BMI value ?30 had higher FINDRISC scores (p<0.001). There is a negative relationship between HLBS-II total score, nutrition, self-actualization, and stress management, which are subdimensions of HLBS-II, and FINDRISC scores of students of health sciences.
