Background: Diabetes increases the risk of disabling disorders including cardiovascular disease,
retinopathy, renal failure, and peripheral vascular disease. ICF is the WHO recommended framework for
assessing functioning and disability in various health conditions. It measures health and disability at both
individual and population levels. The aim of this study is to analyse the impact of diabetes on Capacity and
Performance of activities and participation.Material And Methods: This observational study conducted in
tertiary care hospital at Ahmednagar consisted of 60 patients with Diabetes recruited through the parent
hospital. A questionnaire based on ICF related to Activities of Daily Living was administered on these
patients. Capacity and Performance of patients while performing activities was documented as per their
perception. Basic demographic data was also collected. Activities included were Fine hand use, Walking,
Moving around, Driving, Caring for body parts, Looking after ones health, Preparing meals, Sports, Hobbies,
Socializing. Result: The study consisted of 26 females and 34 males. The range of patient’s age was from
17years to 85 years. The mean of capacity and performance of patients was calculated of different
categories like Fine hand use (C:0.15,P:1.15), Walking(C:0.22,P:1.18), Moving around(C:0.02,P:0.88) and
Looking after one’s health(0.05,P:0.38). Conclusion: Moderate to severe difficulty during performance as
compared to capacity opens a new area of research to explore the causes and taking remedial measures to
reduce the gap between capacity and performance. [Sancheti P Natl J Integr Res Med, 2023; 14(4):16-20,
