ABSTRACT
The Scale for Treatment Adherence in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus version III (EATDMIII©) was tested. It was compounded by the following factors: Family Support, Organization and Community Support, Physical Exercise, Medical Control, Hygiene and SelfCare, Diet and Assessment of Physical Condition. The research was developed at Dr. Rafael Ángel Calderón Guardia Hospital, Costa Rica, n=104 subjects, both genders, during the months of FebruaryMarch 2006. The instrument showed a high reliability (á=0,879) and several significant correlations inter factors and between factors and the total scale.
