Resistance exercise (RE) has received high recognition as a cornerstone in the management of T2DM. There are several advanced research about RE. However, those do not use rubber band during exercise. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine the effect of rubber band resistance exercise on blood glucose level of the patient with T2DM. Methods: The research design was one group pretest-posttest design (rubber band resistance exercise) as the treatment given to the patient with T2DM. Fifteen participants were randomly selected from PHC 2 South Denpasar, Bali, in March 2017 . Each participant was given exercise using the rubber band in groups carried out every day with a duration of 30 minutes for a week. Blood glucose level was measured by using blood glucose test before and after the intervention . Results: The result showed rubber band resistance exercise was statistically significant decrease the level of blood sugar by 25.43 mg/dl, (p < 0.05).
