Diabetes makes a person life miserable if it is not controlled like urban people are most venerable because of their unhealthy lifestyle. Rural people especially people in outside city life are less likely to have high blood glucose because of their continuous physical movement, consumption of organic food and less intake of beverages. But due to the awareness lacking about diabetes and its etiology there is a raise of high blood sugar level even in the small city areas. This study has found 82.2% of the people of three remote areas of Nilfamari, Noakhali and Chandpur about the knowledge gap on the symptoms, complications and side effects of diabetes. 84.8% people are lacking of healthy diet and consumption of carbohydrate intake is higher. Study revealed 83.2% people they have dental disease due to high consumption of betel leaf which makes them more prone to diabetes. This survey is a small footstep to take necessary action from the government and non-government sectors to mitigate the risk of diabetes from this area. Organizations like BIRDEM and BADAS are working hard to make this possible but working station has to be enhanced among all over the country.
