Abstract

The prevalence of diabetes mellitus (DM) in Bali is expected to continuously increase along with changes in lifestyle and dietary habits of people, including those living in Denpasar City. The empowerment of partners, namely the Diabetes Group of the Rahajeng Garjita Community in Health Center 1 West Denpasar, aims to improve the exercise understanding and skills in order to help control patients' blood sugar levels to prevent complications in diabetes mellitus. The method used to achieve these objectives is counseling, training and assistance on diet, as well as exercise and control of blood sugar levels specifically for people with diabetes mellitus until it is independently applied by partners and the community. HbA1c examination before and after exercise is carried out to determine changes in the patient's blood sugar control. The results showed that the mean HbA1c before and after exercise were 6.83 and 6.78 percent, respectively. Therefore, it was concluded that there was a decrease in patients HbA1c level by 0.73% in the combination exercise. Therefore, health services for DM patients need to include combination exercise in their programs.
