Introduction: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a common non-communicable disease with increasing rate of incidence. All of type 1 DM and some type 2 DM patients are treated with insulin which causes an economic and social burden. Treatment satisfaction influences patient compliance and adherence.
Objectives: To have an accurate and valid scale for assessment of satisfaction, we needed a valid questionnaire in Persian version.
Patients and Methods: It was a cross-sectional analytic study performed in Yazd diabetes research center and a private diabetes’ clinic in Tehran in the years of 2014 to 2016. Totally 304 patients were included during the study period.
