ABSTRACT:
Background: Modifiable Lifestyle Disease (MLD) can give rise to many complications. If left untreated, the disease can affect one’s quality of life. MLD can be prevented by modifying our sedentary lifestyle and dietary practice. Introduction: Nowadays, people are aware of the effect of MLDs in their life but the treatment preferences are different among various people. Objective: This study was conducted to identify the treatment seeking behaviour (TSB) among adult populations in East coast Malaysia (Kampung Ladang Sehat, Kuala Terengganu). Method: The survey was conducted by using cross sectional-based questionnaire. The knowledge, attitude and practice among Kampung Ladang Sehat population in East Coast Malaysia with reference to correlation between socio demographic factors and MLD’s TSB is studied. Conclusion: The TSB among adult population in Kampung Ladang Sehat is postulated towards down surging according to the correlation between variables used in the study.
