Abstract: Background: Medication adherence (MA) is associated with better disease control (glycated haemoglobin, blood pressure, and lipid profile), lower rates of death and diabetes-related complications, higher quality of life, and lower health-care resource utilisation in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D).

Methods:Patients with Type 2 diabetes who came to clinics for routine care were asked about pharmacy care to capture comorbidity (hypertension and hyperlipidemia/dyslipidemia), diabetes-related complications, duration of diabetes, HbA1c, blood pressure, lipids, number and types of medications used.

Results: There is, however, a scarcity of research on the impact of diabetes-related distress, depression, and health-related quality of life on MA.

Conclusion: The World Health Organization emphasises that the impact of interventions aimed at improving adherence has far-reaching consequences than specific medical interventions.
