The prevalence of diabetes type 2 is increasing globally. Quality of life in diabetic patients is the primary goal of care. Today, there is an increasing awareness suggesting that patients‘ QoL  and treatment satisfaction improved after good glycemic control.  This study aimed to find out the glycemic parameter and quality of life of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus patients. This study was a descriptive study with cross sectional design. A sample of  115 out-patients attending eight public health centers in Binjai City, Indonesia. Quality of life (QoL) was assessed  in four dimensions of role limitation due to physical health, psycho-social, social and environment in a four Likert point and  blood glucose level and two glycimec profiles; glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) were measured by Spectrophotometer Colorimeter + Full Automatic method and affinity Doronad + Modified HPLC technique. In the results, we confirm that almost 80,0% of diabetes mellitus type 2 patients are in good QoL (score 81-100) in three QoL dimensions; Physical health, Social relationship and Environment health but not in Psychological health dimension. The blood sugar and  HbA1C  level are beyond the normal level, 267.5±103.2 mg/dL and 9.9±2.3% respectively. Diabetic medical care at PHC level need to be improve by controlling.
