Abstract

Background: Prediabetes is a state in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but lower than those required for a diagnosis of diabetes. Adults with prediabetes are at a high risk of developing type 2diabetes and its associated complications. The prevalence of prediabetes and type 2diabetes is increasing worldwide and exhibits a challenge on the health care system. It is estimated that worldwide 6.7% of the adult population have prediabetes, half of them aged less than 50years old, about one third are aged between 20-39years old. The aim of present study is to evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching program on knowledge regarding prediabetes and its prevention among degree student.

Methods: A quantitative pre experimental method was use for this study. The sample consists of 60degree students of selected colleges, Bangalore. They were chosen by a purposive sampling technique. One group pre test- post test design was used to collect the data from subjects.

Results: In the pretest, majority of the subjects had inadequate knowledge with a mean knowledge score of 36.8% whereas in post test there was a significant gain in mean knowledge score of 67.6%.A significant association was found between socio demographic variables. χ 2 value  was 78.367 at 0.05 level of significance.

Conclusion: The finding of the study shows that in the pretest, majority of the degree students had inadequate knowledge regarding prediabetes and its prevention, where as in posttest majority of students had gained adequate knowledge after administration of structured teaching program. Thus, the study findings indicate that structured teaching program was effective in enhancing the knowledge regarding prediabetes and its prevention among degree students in selected colleges, Bangalore.

Keywords: Prediabetes, structured teaching program, purposive sampling, preexperimental study, one group pre test post test design
