Diabetes is one of the most significant chronic illness as it cannot be completely cured, and this can affect the economic development significantly. According to International Diabetes Federation (IDF), it is reported that there are 285 million patients with diabetes globally, and it is expected to soar to over 435 million by 20301 . Currently, around 4.8 million adults in Thailand suffer from diabetes, and complications tend to occur when their higher ages. This was mainly due to a sedentary lifestyle, obesity and an increase in age. From the total number of patients, there are only 35.6 percent or 2.6 million people who have been diagnosed and properly received a treatment, and there are only 0.9 million people whose symptoms are under control. Therefore, this results in the number of mortalities of over 200 people per day. It is predicted that the prevalence of diabetes will surge to 5.3 million people by 20402 . For those who do have a poor control of their blood sugar level, this can result them in many complications, including diabetic retinopathy, coronary artery disease, Chronic kidney diseases, cerebrovascular diseases, and neuropathy3 . Also, it is very likely that they will get a diabetic foot wound that could result in amputation.
