          Abstract

          Poorly controlled diabetes among young people poses a significant challenge to public health in the future since it will be affecting the economy and become a social burden. Health sciences students should have a good knowledge of diabetic Mellitus (DM) management since they play an important role in patient education. This study aims to assess the level of knowledge and attitude of DM Type 2 among health sciences students. A cross-sectional study using DKQ-24 and Attitude towards Diabetes Mellitus Questionnaire were used. More than half of the respondents scored moderate and good knowledge with 50% displaying a positive attitude and proven statistically significant.
