Abstract [en]

Health-care seeking behaviour is important as it determines acceptance of healthcare and outcomes of chronic conditions but has been investigated to a limited extent in persons with diabetes in developing countries.

Qualitative study. Focus-group interviews.

Reasons for seeking help from traditional healers were diabetessymptoms and failure of effect from western medicine. Help had been sought from different health facilities with the help of relatives and friends.

Conclusion: A switch between healthcare providers influenced by popular and folk sectos was found. Despite beliefs of using different healthcare providers searching for complementary medicine, participants still experienced health problems related to diabetes.
