Background: Kapurung is a typical food of North Luwu which is consumed everyday and made from sago. Sago is a high carbohydrate source food, high fiber and low glycemic index.
Objectives: This study aims to determine the effect of consumption pattern kapurung on fasting blood glucose (GDP), 2 hours of post prandial blood glucose (GD2JPP) and female physical activity in ages 35-55 years in the majority group to consume sago and minority groups to consume sago.
Materials and Methods: This study used an observational research design with cross-sectional method in the majority population consuming sago and minority consuming sago based on several inclusion criteria. The inclusion criteria in this study were healthy (not / undiagnosed by doctors suffering from DM), aged 35-55 years and living in North Luwu, settled in Luwu Utara for at least 10 years. Data were analyzed using the Mann Whitney test.
Result: The results showed that there was no significant difference in GDP between kapurung consuming and minority consuming kapurung (p = 0.519) and significant difference of GD2JPP between the majority of kapurung consumption and minority of kapurung consumption (p = 0.000). The majority of people consuming kapurung with physical activity having a lower GD2JPP score of 81.44 mg / dl compared with low physical activity was 116.03 mg / dl (p = 0.020). Whereas minority societies consuming kapurung have no significant relationship between physical activity to GDP (p = 0.527) and GD2JPP (p = 0.453). There is a difference in fat intake, KH, v it. C and zinc significant between the majority and minority kapurung group of 0.020; 0.000; 0.009; 0.000.

Conclusion: The pattern of kapurung consumption can help to control sugar while 2 hours of post prandial if it can be done with moderate physical activity.
