Statistical analysis was carried out by graph pad prism version 8.3.0. Repeated measures one-way ANOVA was used as a statistical method. Results: This study reveals that the values were reduced and statistically significant in FBS, PPBS and BMI from baseline to the final follow-up. FBS levels shows the p value is statistically significant in 4-20 transformed scores, while in 0-100 the p value shows statistically not significant. Conclusion: Quality of life among type 2 diabetes needs improvement with proper treatment regimens ensuring good glycaemic control.
