Background: Diabetes Mellitus is a major health problem in the world. It is one of the most prevalent metabolic diseases which can lead to enormous medical as well as socioeconomic consequences. The main objective of the study is to assess the effectiveness of structured teaching programme regarding management of hypoglycaemia among people with diabetes mellitus. Materials and methods: pre experimental, one group pre- test and post-test research design was used in this study. Study was conducted in selected rural areas. 60 peoples with diabetes mellitus were selected by using simple random sampling technique. Self structured questionnaire was developed to collect socio demographic data and knowledge on management of hypoglycaemia. Results: The finding of the study shown that in pre test majority 32(54%) had inadequate knowledge, 26(43%) had moderate knowledge and 2(3%) had adequate knowledge. Post test reveals that majority 36(60%) had adequate knowledge, 20(33%) had moderate knowledge and 4(7%) had inadequate knowledge. The mean score of pre test was (11±4.01) and post test mean score was (20±4.8), obtained ‘t’ value was 28.7. Chi square shown that there was no significant relationship between the post test levels of knowledge with their Age, Gender, Religion, Marital status, Educational status, Occupation, family income, Treatment of diabetes mellitus and any history of hypoglycemic attack. Conclusion: The study concluded that the level of knowledge was improved after administration of structured teaching programmed. Thus structured teaching programmed is an effective strategy which can help in improving the level of knowledge among people with diabetes mellitus.
