Proper anti-diabetic medication will reduce the high morbidity and mortality rate of diabetes mellitus. Medication adherence is an essential determinant of therapeutic success in patients with diabetes in preventing complications and achieving therapeutic targets. The higher the knowledge about diabetes mellitus, the higher the level of medication adherence. This study aimed to determine the relationship between knowledge and medication adherence in patients with diabetes mellitus.
