This document sets out the results of an investigation that had as its main objective to determine the sociocultural factors that influence the preference of the diabetic patient to empirical-traditional treatment over the pharmacological treatment of the Health Center of Las Margaritas, Chiapas, Mexico. A cross-sectional study was conducted, involving 100% of diabetic patients who are given care at the Health Center. The information was obtained by applying a Likert scale and was supplemented by open questions. Among the most relevant findings, 37% of patients were found to be in the age range of 60-69 years; 15% had diabetic glaucoma as the main complication and 57% are being treated with 850 mg metformin. Moringa is the most consumed plant, as an empirical-traditional treatment at 61%.

Keywords : Empirical Treatment, Diabetes Mellitus, Medicinal Plants.
