One of the other hard parts of this disease is it cannot be cured. According to an article by mayoclonic.com called “type 2 diabetes”, it states “There’s no cure for type 2 diabetes, but you can manage — or even prevent — the condition”. Being that there is no cure, this makes type 2 diabetes a very delicate type of long-term disease, and patients affected by it must follow a set of stern restrictions regarding how much they exercise, what they may or may not eat, and what they need to do on a daily basis. This regimen must be followed to the “T” in order to avoid complications and maintain proper insulin and sugar levels. Diabetes is a very dangerous disease on its own, with complications ranging from nausea, abdominal pain, or shock in acute patients, to glaucoma, nerve damage, impotence, kidney failure, eye complications, gangrene and amputation in chronic patients. (Mathur, 2010) These complications are dangerous enough, but add to that the danger of not following your doctor’s advice, and the patient doubles or even triples his risk and vulnerability to complications related to diabetes. Some call it non-compliance, others refer to it as non-adherence, but this paper agrees with the statement by Jane Seley, saying “No matter what we call it, the outcome is the same. The patient is not doing what we told them to do.” This makes this disease very alarming in terms of how medical practitioners should educate, guide and respond to their patient’s needs and actions, and whether or not he follows his medical and health regimen. Our patient, 45 years of age, male, Caucasian, and already has been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes has been observed and reported to not adhere to the diabetic regimen regarding regular physical activity, healthy diet and medication. This paper’s aim is to provide possible reasons behind the patient’s neglect of his doctor’s advice, provide possible risks related to his situation, and list some potential intervention methods that would be most effective for a person in our patient’s situation. This paper’s aim is to compile and deliver this information to our patient’s doctor in order for him to best analyze the situation and best decide on the intervention and action that will be performed on the patient. I aim to provide this information through this paper using these subtopics. Possible reasons for non-compliance Complications of diabetes type 2 related to non-compliance Health intervention options for the doctor to implement ?Conclusion Possible reasons for non-compliance This section of our paper attempts to address and determine the possible and most likely reasons why our patient does not follow his assigned and advised diabetes regiment. It determines and presents some of the most common reasons for non-compliance to or non-adherence and will relate the ones that are most applicable to our patient’s situation or demographic.
