Diabetes is a major non communicable disease, ranking as a leading cause of death and disability worldwide. It is no longer a disease of predominantly rich nations, the prevalence of diabetes steadily increasing everywhere. Unfortunately, in many settings the lack of effective policies to create supportive environments for healthy lifestyles and the lack of access to quality health care means that the prevention and treatment of diabetes, particularly for people of modest means, are not being pursued. The aim of the study was to estimate the prevalence of diabetes among morning walkers. In the survey done from Jan-march 2017, the prevalence of diabetes came 39.18 % (152) among 388 total numbers of subjects. Early identification of at-risk individuals and appropriate lifestyle intervention would significantly help in preventing or postponing the onset of diabetes.
