Population is the elders who were served at 6 elderly care centers which are member of the network of elderly care organizations. The sample was 67 elderly within the specific criteria and was divided into 2 groups; 41 for experimental group and 26 for control group. Laboratory recordings of fasting blood sugar test (FBS) were collected for both before and after the experiment, and were analyzed by statistics, percentage, mean, standard deviation and t-test The experimental group was mostly female at the average age of 60-70 years, average weight of 60-70 kilograms and average height of 150-170 centimeters. The first experiment’s results showed that blood sugar level is very high. (148.19 mg/dl) After adjusting dietary habits by using rice with low glycemic index (parboiled rice products: ALLOVE) for a specific period of time.

The 1st and the 2nd blood sugar test compared to the 1st and the 3rd (26.92,40.31 mg/dl) blood sugar test among the experimental group were significantly different in terms of statistic at the level of 0.01.
