Approximately 60%. Of medications and pills prescribed to fight chronic conditions, such as high blood pressure (hyperthermia), high blood cholesterol and impaired insulin sensitivity are not taken by the patients as practiced by the doctor. Adherence plays an integral part in successful treatment. On the other hand, medical non-adherence can lead to unexcepted outcomes, including switching to other medications, additional doctor appointments and, as a result, unnecessarily prolonging treatment duration.
It is crucial to follow the all the doctor’s recommendations, such as timing of consumption and doses.
