Type 2 diabetes is a global crisis that threatens the health and economy of all nations, particularly developing countries. This epidemic is primarily driven by rapid urbanization, nutrition transition, and increasing sedentary lifestyle. The present study was conducted to study the effect of amla powder and turmeric powder consumption on middle aged (40-59 years) non-insulin dependent diabetics.  Multistage random sampling technique was used in the present study. For  sample selection door to door survey was conducted in Moti  Katra and Sheetla  Gali area of Agra. The total sample size of the study was 18 diabetic non insulin dependent respondents. The subjects were divided in two groups (Experimental n1 =9 and control group n2 = 9). In the present study, more females were found to be  suffering from type 2 diabetes than males. Amla powder and turmeric powder was consumed by experimental group diabetic respondents for 45 days. Fasting blood sugar level of experimental group was significant on 15th day, 30th day and 45th day while post prandial blood sugar level was significant on 30th and 45th day. On 45th day both fasting and post prandial blood sugar level were statistically significant (p<0.05). NSI diet calculator and website (2014) was used for calculating 24 hour diet recall of both experimental and control group.

Key words: Middle aged, Amla powder, Turmeric powder, Non-insulin dependent diabetics, Fasting, Post prandial blood sugar level.
