Compliance and control of diabetes in a family practice setting, Saudi Arabia
AbstractThis study aimed to identify some determinants of compliance with diet, anti-diabetic drugs and the appointment system amongst diabetic patients [n = 294] attending a family practice setting. The results showed that good compliance with diet was significantly higher among males [P = 0.01] and those with good diabetic control [P = 0.01], while good compliance with appointment systems was significantly associated with type II diabetes [P < 0.01] and good care [P < 0.01]. Compliance with drugs showed no significant association with any of the studied determinants [P > 0.05]. When multiple regression analysis was applied, the degree of control of diabetes, its duration and the total score of care were the only predictors of the three aspects of compliance [P < 0.05]
