Self-reporting serves as a mask for non-compliance in subjects in research studies. If a subject stays compliant with research guidelines it is assumed their diabetic foot ulcer would heal. This study evaluates the correlation between alleged patient compliance and the rate of healing of diabetic foot ulcers using a retrospective chart analysis. There was no correlation seen and the results showed normal distribution. This could be caused by unreported non-adherence.
