Diabetes mellitus (DM) is one of degenerative diseases with high burden due to its impact on mortality and disability. There is yet information on the prevalence of DM related disability in Indonesian community. Analysis was performed to depict disability among “healthy' and DM in population. The sample was derived from Riskesdas 2013 comprising 430,304 respondents aged 35 or higher. The results showed that DM prevalence was 3.6%. Females who lived in urban had higher prevalence. The prevalence of disability among the “healthy” was 13.8% while among DM was 44.1%. DM related disability started to rise among those aged 55 or higher. The 75 or higher age group had the highest prevalence (76.2%). Cognitive and mobility limitation were the highest disability among the diabetic. Those with DM had 4,89 times (95% CI 4,74 – 5,07) higher risk of disability compared with the ‘healthy group'. Meanwhile respondents with DM and stroke had the highest disability prevalence compared with other groups. The increasing trend of DM prevalence in Indonesia will be accompanied by disabilities. This will become burden for the sufferers, their family and society. Therefore it is necessary to strengthen DM prevention, promotion program, and improve DM related disability management.
