dc.description.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]‎EN
