This study used a cross-sectional design to determine which health and sociodemographic variables predicted IADL performance in adults with type 2 diabetes. Using stepwise multiple linear regression, the final model revealed that number of medications, presence of depression, and number of nights spent in the hospital predicted frequency of IADL performance. This information will assist OTs in understanding the underlying factors that impact IADL performance.
