Regardding KAP assessment, the mean knowledge score was 11.59 ± 4.89 (maximum 20), the mean attitude score was 2.83 ± 0.82 (maximum 4) and mean practice score was 11.92 ± 3.78 (maximum 20). Though knowledge was more in male than in female, but attitude was found better among female. There was no such difference in practice score between male and female patients. Overall, the knowledge score was found to be low, but results on practice and attitude were satisfactory as compared to previous studies. The awareness programs on diabetes seems to be much in need. Hence, KAP assessment studies are of great asset and more researches are to be done in future.
