Happy Malaysia Day to my Malaysian readers & friends! Today I wanna share some information about Diabetics and health which I’ve learnt from Glucerna® workshop last month. Thanks to The Butterfly Project for the invitation.
The workshop was held at Culinary 19, Damansara Heights. I like the venue because it's bright and spacious. Only thing is the car park is a bit troublesome. For those who reached early and parked inside, we had to wait for the late comers to drive away their cars before we could leave. :/
Malaysia is currently home to 2.6 million diabetics recently. And by 2020, this figure is expected to be 4.5 million! Such an alerting figures isn’t it?
We were welcome by the Emcee - Mr. Issac
I believe awareness and precautious are very important when it comes to our health. It is crucial for us to be aware that our daily diet has an important impact on Diabetes issues and how having healthy meal plans helps as part of the overall management plan.
The appropriate type of dietary supplement can also help both in terms of preventive measures and the effective management of diabetes.
Dr Shaalani Ramachandran shared with us the information on Diabetes
I’ve seen my uncles and aunties suffered from complications of Diabetes over the years. Most of them had eye complications, and even lost their eyes due to diabetes. Not only that, some of them had their leg cut due to non-traumatic lowed limb amputations. It was sad to see them so suffer. In order to prevent/treat Diabetes, proper Nutrition is important. Eating right and exercising can have an impact on the health of people with diabetes.
