The education was delivered through counselling and compared between baseline versus 3months and 6months followed up. The biochemical profiles viz. FPG, PPPG and HbA1c, as well as BMI values were found significantly (P<0.001 and P<0.01) decreasing trend during 3months and 6months follow up after education to DM subjects. In the present study, for 6months follow up, the principal component analysis (PCA) indicated the PC - 1 (94.822%) relatively higher value of positive loading for FBG.
