Abstract: Background: Medical adherence is an essential aspect or role played by the patients receiving prescribed treatment to control their medical conditions for their overall health benefit. Diabetes mellitus is a medical condition that has been estimated to rise from 135 to 300 million by 2025. This study sought to determine the level of adherence to antidiabetic medications among out-patients who visited the diabetic clinic in the teaching hospital. Methodology: A quantitative cross-sectional study design and a random sampling procedure were used to collect data from patients at the diabetic clinic from 1st February 2022 to the end of April.2022 The study population consisted of all diagnosed diabetic patients attending the Diabetic Clinic of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital. Two hundred five (205) patients with diabetes were identified as participants in this study. An Interviewer administered a modified semi-structured Morisky Scale questionnaire designed with REDCAP was used to collect data. and the data were organized using Excel software 2019 and analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 26 results were presented with correlation statistics and Pearson’s coefficients. Findings: Two hundred and five (205) respondents participated in the study. The mean (SD) of respondents was 52.8 (±11.9) years and ranged between 19 years and 80 years respectively. The results showed significant but weak negative correlations between age and adherence (r=-0.16, p<.05), Number of dependents and adherence (r= -0.19, p<.05). Correlations between adherence and gender, marital status, income earnings, religion, and employment status were weak positive correlations. Conclusion: It was found that the level of anti-diabetic medication adherence was 79.0%. The number of dependents, education level, income, and employment status were contributing factors affecting adherence.
