Diabetic mellitus is characterized by increased blood glucose level due to insufficient or inefficient insulin. Pre-diabetes is a condition that comes before diabetes. Blood glucose levels gets higher than the normal but are not to be termed as diabetes.

The research design for the study was experimental research design. Convenience sampling technique was used to select samples. Structured interview was used to collect background variable and pre and posttest fasting glucose level was classified by using the International Diabetes Association (IDA) classification of diabetes (2012). Data were collected by 60 from Edapalayam Village, Vellore. The pretest mean score of fasting blood glucose was 119.6524±6.18 and the posttest mean score was 111.92±7.50. The calculated paired ‘t’ test value of t = 10.950 that there was a highly significant difference at p<0.001. the demographic variables sex and family income had shown statistically significant association with posttest level of fasting blood sugar among pre diabetic clients at p<0.05 level and the other demographic variables had not shown statistically significant association with the posttest level of fasting blood sugar level among pre diabetic clients.
