  1. Data presented as number (%), mean ± SD, median and 25% and 75% quartiles; f = female, y = years, BMI = body mass index. DSMP: Diabetes Self-Management Profile; SCI-R: Self-Care Inventory-revised.
  2. *Based on best cutoff for classifying a patient as having a higher adherence score (≥41 for DSMP and ≥48 for SCI-R).
