The adherence by patients to diabetic foot ulcer therapy is often difficult. The sample was predominantly white (76%), older (mean age 63 years), and female (64%). Gestational diabetes normally develops around 20 to 24 weeks of the pregnancy. Individuals age 50 years or older responded via mail or phone to items measuring numeracy, perceptions of provider communication quality, and CRC screening.
