Questionnaire was designed and demographic information and tests of patients was recorded. Information was statistically analyzed using SPSS software, T-test tests and Chi-Square. FBS average had a significant decrease in intervention group (p<0.0001), while it had a meaningful increase in control group (p=0.045). HbA1c mean had a significant de-crease in intervention group (p< 0.0001), while increased in control group, but it was not a significant increase (p=0.578).
