Twenty-one (21) healthcare providers (HCPs) with an average age of 42.5 years were studied, eleven (11) HCPs from Kenyatta National Hospital and ten (10) HCPs from MP Shah Hospital. There was positive correlation with significant association of verbal language use on diabetes mellitus management practices overall [β 0.56 (95% CI 0.10, 1.01), p= 0.019]; at KNH [β 1.17 (95% CI 0.54, 1.81), p= 0.004] and not at MP Shah Hospital [β 0.24 (95% CI -1.38, 1.86), p= 0.718]. The null hypothesis was rejected overall and at KNH while there was failure to reject the null hypothesis at qualitative methodology.
