Abstract: 

Introduction: For the management of diabetes pharmacological treatment alone will not produce excellent result. For proper control of fluctuating blood glucose level, every individual must be counseled on life style modifications, diet and exercise. To prevent diabetes complication, a patient must be aware of basic knowledge of diabetes. Aim: The main objective of the present study was to evaluate the knowledge of diabetic patients residing in derayans community regarding diabetes, associated risk factors, complications and management. Method: A descriptive cross-sectional study was used to evaluate knowledge of diabetic patients residing in derayans community regarding diabetes, associated risk factors, complications and management. A validated semi structured questionnaire was used for data collection from a sample of 70 diabetes patients conveniently selected from derayan community residing in Pakistan. After data collection, data was coded and analyzed statistically. Results: The results showed that the most common diabetes complications observed among the derayan community were: protein urea (n = 11, 15.7 %), blurred vision (n = 30, 42.9 %) and heart diseases (n = 37, 52.9 %). The common action taken on finding blood glucose lower than normal was to do nothing (n = 26, 37.1 %). The most frequently eaten food item was: potatoes (n = 21, 30 %), rice (n = 22, 31.4 %) and fish (n = 11, 15.7 %). The most high carbohydrate diet considered was: potatoes (n = 30, 42.9 %) and dates (n = 34, 48.6 %). Conclusion: The results of the present study concluded inadequate knowledge and poor self care diabetes management among the derayan community. Diabetes self-management educational programs must be designed for the community to equip them with basic information and management skills around diet, exercise, self-monitoring and medication use.
