Findings: The findings indicated that the majority of patients were female (74.32%), house wives (71.62%) and in the age range of 50 to 59. There was no significant difference in the level of fasting blood sugar of the patients before the experiment (t=1.78) in which the percentage decreased in the experimental group after experiment (P<0.001).
