The study population included all Type I and Type II diabetes mellitus patients those who were self administering insulin injection and attending outpatient medicine department of Gian Sagar Medical College and Hospital, Ram Nagar, Rajpura, District Patiala, Punjab. Sample size was 72. Data collection tool included socio demographic data and self structured knowledge questionnaire consisting 20 dichotomous questions regarding self administration of insulin injection.
