This thesis had two objectives: to determine the socio-demographic, metabolic determinants and prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and metabolic syndrome (MetS) in Sarawak; to link these findings to health-related beliefs and behaviours in this population. We conducted a mixed-methods sequential design where 270 cases-controls were quantitatively studied and a purposefully selected subset of 32, were studied through qualitative interviews. The thesis discusses how health related beliefs/ behaviours influence the development of MetS and CKD.
