Abstract

Diabetes Mellitus is metabolic disorder disease where body prevents to convert carbohydrate into energy. This disease is mainly indicated by excessive glucose level in blood causing medical complications that may lead to deadly effect. The prevalence number of this disease increases persistently and more than 45% of the cases are undiagnosed. People of Timor Leste have lifestyle that strongly leads to the risk of suffering from Diabetes Mellitus. Some people do not receive proper formal education, some of them are jobless and their lifestyle is not quite healthy. In term of medical literacy, people of Timor Leste do not have sufficient knowledge on this subject. Since Diabetes Mellitus may not indicate significant physical problem, people who starts having this disease may not feel any serious problem. On the other hand, the facility of medical service is not really sufficient to provide initial diagnose for Diabetes Mellitus and, as a result, some people are not aware that they are suffering from the disease. A test was carried for the people of Horai-Quic, Maubesi, Ainaro, Timor Leste, aged 25 – 50 year. From the 47 people participating the test, it was identified that 40 people (85.11%) tend to suffer from Diabetes Mellitus. Some lifestyles are described and analyzed, and their impact on the possibility of having the disease will be highlighted.
