The sociodemographic and medical characteristics were obtained. Multiple logistic regression was used to evaluate the associated factors for compliance. Results: The percentage of compliance to OAD among the elderly patients was 59.4%. Transportation to the clinic (p=0.022, OR:2.32, 95% CI:1.13,4.77) , HbA1c level (p=0.013, OR:0.51, 95% CI:0.29,0.87), supportive family behaviour (p=0.025, OR: 1.60, 95% CI:1.06, 2.43) and obstructive family behaviour (p=0.008, OR: 0.55, 95% CI:0.36, 0.86) were significant factors that associated with compliance. Conclusions: The percentage of compliance among the elderly with Type 2 DM still low.
