Abstract: Background: Diabetes Mellitus contributes to a considerable increase in morbidity and mortality rates which can be reduced by early diagnosis and treatment. Aim: To evaluate the effectiveness of cinnamon on reduction of blood glucose level among drivers with Type II Diabetes Mellitus. Design: A Quasi experimental pretest posttest control group design. 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. Whereas in control group, pretest 5 (25 %) of drivers were in grade I level, 6 (30 %) were in grade II level, 4 (20 %) were in grade III and 5 (25 %) were in grade IV level. Whereas in post test 2 (10 %) were in grade I, 9 (45 %) were in Grade II, 2 (15 %) were in Grade III, and majority 7 (30 %) were in Grade IV level. The mean post test score on level of blood glucose level in the experimental group 150.4 (SD 30.28) was significantly lower than the mean post test score on level of blood glucose in control group 195.85 (SD 36.26). Unpairedt value 4.3232 (table value = 2.09) which is significant at P< 0.05 level. It shows that there is a significant difference found in the posttest scores on the level of blood glucose among experimental group drivers with type II Diabetes Mellitus. Conclusion: Cinnamon was effe
