ABSTRACT:
Regarding Diabetes mellitus (DM), the public and professional awareness of the risk factors and symptoms are the important ladders towards its prevention and control. The study aimed at knowledge, attitude and practice (KAP) of DM between medical and non-medical students and to make recommendations based on the study with respect to the interventions required to impart knowledge, and foster good practices in the prevention of it. The knowledge of DM among non-medical students is average, with the evidence of only about half of them have high knowledge. In contrast, most of the participants having medical background have high knowledge about it. Higher number of medical students show positive attitude towards the prevention of DM because they are more aware and have higher knowledge about it whereas less than half of the non-medical students also show some positive attitude. Finally, considering the fact that medical students have higher knowledge and awareness regarding DM, their tendency on practicing the appropriate action to prevent the disease is higher than non-medical students.
