Knowledge of the general public in rural areas is very minimal because of their ignorance about diabetes mellitus. The method used in this study is descriptive observational prospectively by providing a questionnaire to assess the level of knowledge of respondents and the use of diabetes medication. Data collection was carried out in two stages. As a result of this service activity, respondents who were given counseling actually experienced an increase in their understanding of diabetes. The data obtained were analyzed by statistical program with t-test analysis. This can be seen from the statistical results that there is an effect of p <0.05 on knowledge about diabetes, the use of antidiabetic drugs, the effectiveness of antidiabetic drugs, the quality of antidiabetic drugs, and adherence to taking antidiabetic drugs.
