Assessment of the level of adherence to treatment among type 2 diabetic patients in Matlala District Hospital

Adegbola, Saheed Adekunle January 2010 (has links)
Thesis (M Med (Family Medicine))--University of Limpopo, 2010. / The number of diabetic patients will continue to rise even in rural settings and the burden of this disease will continue to take its effect on the limited resources of these communities. The effect of such burden will be more pronounced if we are to add the various complications associated with substandard management of diabetes mellitus. The first step in assessing the level of care we give to this category of patients is to measure their level of adherence, in an effort to expose the pitfalls on both the side of the patients and on the side of the health care provider. The aim of the study is to assess the level of adherence to treatment among type2 diabetic patients in Matlala district hospital; Limpopo Province. This cross-sectional study used the convenience method of sampling with the aid of a tested, structured questionnaire, to obtain data from respondents between December 2009 and March 2010, a period of 4 months. The excel computer program was used for data capturing. Percentages and numbers were used for interpretation and cross tabulation was used to determine association. The result of the study indicated that 137 {70%} of the respondents adhere to diabetes treatment. There were two demographical characteristics that are significantly associated with non adherence: age {p=0.028} and employment status {p=0.018}. Of those respondents that keep their appointments, 98% are adherent to treatment. When considering reasons for poor adherence; 29% of respondents stated that the clinic did not have their pills, 16% stated that they forgot to take their medication and 14% stated that they travelled to visit ix and did not take enough pills with them. On the reasons for poor adherence to lifestyle: 29% of the respondents said that they were too old, 22% stated no specific reason, 13% struggled to motivate themselves and 10% simply forgot what to do. Most, 68%, of the respondents that adhere to the recommended use of medication agreed that they take it at meal time, 14% set a reminder, 8% employed the assistance of a treatment supporter and other respondents used other means to remember. The study revealed an above average level of adherence in my setting and it will be logical to assess whether this corresponds to the metabolic control expected of good adherence. More is needed to be done on the reasons why our patients do not adhere to both medication and lifestyle changes and each stake holder needs to address their short comings.

Mbaya, John Kabamba January 2010 (has links)
Thesis (M Med(Family Medicine))--University of Limpopo (Medunsa Campus) 2010. / Aim & Objectives Aim: To explore the lay beliefs of type 2 diabetic patients seen at Prince Mshiyeni Memorial Hospital. Objectives: To understand lay beliefs of effective life long management of type 2 diabetes patients and consequently to make recommendations of improving management of diabetes in conjunction with the findings of the study. Methodology Study Design: An exploratory study from a qualitative perspective using free attitude interviews as a data collection technique. Setting: Prince Mshiyeni Memorial Hospital a district hospital located in Umlazi in the outskirts of Durban, South Africa. Study Population: All type 2 diabetic patients above the age of 40 on treatment for 18 months or more. Ten respondents were purposively selected using maximum variation sampling strategy. Participants were asked individually to give an account of their beliefs and experience in the management of diabetes. All interviews were tape recorded, transcribed verbatim, and analyzed to identify emerging themes. Results The interpretative thematic analysis generated the following main themes: 1) Combination therapy 2) Modern versus Traditional 3) The bitter stuff 4) Traditional healers and alternative remedies viii 5) Stress: Physical, financial, emotional, psychosocial strain 6) Spiritual believes: Religious and Traditional 7) Eating right food and loose weight Conclusions This study has described most lay beliefs about the management of type 2 diabetes in this setting. The research has identified that type 2 diabetic patients seen at Prince Mshiyeni Memorial Hospital in Umlazi South of Durban held different diabetes management beliefs based on their respective initial symptom perception and beliefs, their illness origin and healing beliefs, their spiritual and traditional beliefs and values and to a significant extent, the beliefs of spouses or life partner in couples and of family members. These findings have challenged the functionality of the health care in its capacity to respond to the population expectations based on their ethnic, spiritual and cultural background.

Pepe, Banza Kalenga January 2010 (has links)
Thesis (Family Medicine)) -- University of Limpopo, 2010. / Background In the Vanga Health Zone, diabetic patients have idea that diabetes is due to witchcraft, which idea can interfere with the prevention and management of their disease. The purpose of this study was to determine the profile of patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus at Vanga Hospital, Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo). Methods A cross-sectional study was designed with use of a questionnaire to a systematic sample of type 2 diabetic patients attending the diabetic clinic of Vanga hospital for at least six months and resident at Vanga health zone. Results Only 2.1 % of the participants believe in a scientific cause for diabetes; 53.5 % of them do not think that their disease is due to the fact that they crossed over a path where some ritual was performed and, 89.2 % of the participants believe that God deserted the person who suffered from diabetes and expect that prayer will rectify the disease. The majority of participants (65.6 %) had poor glycaemic control. Correlation analysis has shown that glycaemia level was not significantly associated with sociodemographic characteristics or health belief factors. Conclusion The majority of patients at the Vanga diabetic clinic have a greater need for management strategies to improve their glycaemic control.
