True experimental, pre-test, post-test control group design was adopted in this study using purposive sampling technique. Among 40 clients, 20 were allotted to experimental and 20 clients into control group by randomization. Pre-test was done using glucometer to measure the fasting and postprandial blood sugar level. Guava leaf tea was administered for the clients along with routine treatment in experimental group after breakfast and phone reminder was given before and after dinner every day for a period of 28 days and a reminder chart was placed at client’s home. Routine treatment was continued by the clients in the control group. Post-test was done on day 14 and day 28 using glucometer to measure the fasting and postprandial blood sugar level for both experimental and control group. It was identified that the mean fasting blood sugar level among clients with type II diabetes mellitus during pre-test and post-test in the experimental group was 136.05 and 105 respectively with a mean difference of 31.05. The standard deviation of pre-test and post-test were 51.42 and 30.78 respectively. The calculated ‘t’ value 4.71 was greater than the table value 1.96 at 0.05 level of significance. The mean postprandial blood sugar level among clients with type II diabetes mellitus during pre-test and post-test in the experimental group was 198.75 and 155.85 respectively with a mean difference of 42.9. The standard deviation of pre-test and post-test were 79.43 and 58.48 respectively. The calculated ‘t’ value 5.70 was greater than the table value 1.96 at 0.05 level of significance.
