Setting: Dhanalakshmi Srinivasan Group of Institutions. Participants: 40 drivers with Type II diabetes Mellitus. Selection criteria: Drivers diagnosed with Type II Diabetes Mellitus and Fasting Blood Glucose level more than 140mg/dl. Methods: 40 drivers with Type II Diabetes Mellitus 20 in experimental and 20 in control group were selected. Blood glucose level was assessed using glucometer before and after consumption of cinnamon powder. Results: The results had shown that in pretest majority 7 (35 %) of the drivers were in grade I level, 2 (10 %) were in grade II, 3 (15 %) were in grade III level and 8 (40 %) of drivers were in grade IV level. Whereas in post test majority 13 (65 %) were in grade I, 3 (15 %) were in Grade II, 2 (10 %) were in Grade III, and 2 (10 %) were in Grade IV level in experimental group.
