Diabetes is a serious public health problem accounting for the second highest cause of death in South Africa in 2015. Poor diabetic control causes various micro- and macro-vascular conditions of which management is expensive and ultimately results in a poor quality of life and death. Globally, less than one third of the population attains diabetes control of an HbA1c of less than 7%. However, little is known about the extent of control in South Africa.
