Blood sugar is the simplest form of carbohydrate that are absorbed into the blood fluid through the digestive system. To determine the effect of nutrition tombong coconut (kentos) to normal blood sugar levels in elderly using non-probability way side. The samples used were 20 people, with a comparator 10 samples for the experimental group and 10 control group. Based on the known output value of significance (Sig.) For all data either on the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test and Shapiro-Wilk test> 0.05 it can be concluded that the research data is not normally distributed. Then do tests on non-parametric Wilcoxon statistical test known by output Asymp.Sig (2-tailed) worth 0,000. Because the value of 0,000 is less than <0.05, it can be concluded that there are significant nutritional coconut tombong (Kentos) to normal blood sugar levels in the elderly. The researchers advise these results can be discussion of scientific thought. Key words: The Level Of Blood Sugar, Coconut Tombong (Kentos).
