Rights and PermissionsRights and Permissions

Patients compliance to insulin was investigated in 45 Zambian diabetic patients. Non-compliance was found in 31 of them. 25 patients were underdosing while 6 were overdosing themselves. The major reasons for it were inability to understand the usage of syringes due to freauent changes in insulin strenaths and type of syringes; and deliberate underdosing for fear of interrupted in supply.
