Knowledge of and Adherence to Health Advice among Adults with Diabetes in Libya
Non-adherence to health care advice and medicals has been prevalent in the contemporary times. This notion prompted the need to undertake this research with the main
objective being to establish the knowledge of people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes and subsequently establish factors that foster adherence to treatment and how to
effectively manage the condition. To collect the required data, the researchers employed the use of cross sectional survey design to collect facts from adults with
type1 and type2 diabetes. Form the results retrieved from the research; it is evident that the illiterate people have very poor knowledge on matters relating to health
care advice and medicals in diabetes. It was also discovered that women are the most not cognizant with the knowledge. Two educational programmes were recommended to
combat illiteracy and lack of information regarding type1 and type2 diabetes; in the first programme professionals are to teach the patients, and the second programme
requires the government to introduce health education to everyone.
Trends and Disparities in Heart Disease Mortality among American Indians/Alaska Natives, 1990-2009.

objective of this research, data from the Indian Health Service (IHS) were merged with that of National Death Index for 1990 to 2009. The data collected clearly
established that death prevalence subsequent to heart disease among the American Indians was higher compared to whites. The data collected also established that some
