ABSTRACT

The objective of this study was to determine the effect of GSR (galvanic skin resistance) biofeedback relaxation technique on blood glucose and anxiety level of type 2 diabetes patients. The total sample size for this study was 12 diabetes patients include 6 male and 6 female participants. Incidental sampling method was adopted to select the sample. Intervention program for the study was 20 days for each patient. The blood glucose and anxiety level were measured before and after the training on day 1st and 20th. Result indicates that there is significant mean difference between the score of blood glucose in pre and post conditions of the interventions. The blood sugar level of type 2 diabetes patients is lowered in post condition indicating the influence of biofeedback intervention. A sample of adequate size may reveal a significant effect of biofeedback. There is significant mean difference between the score of state – trait anxiety among pre and post test score of type 2 diabetes patients.
