When Dr. Mike Gan asked me to be the ambassador for the Diabetes Awareness week, I did not hesitate to accept. I saw first hand how our family cook of 20+ years, Manang Bising, went through excruciating pain and suffering and eventually had her leg amputated. Unaware of the serious consequences of diabetes, what was a seemingly ordinary wound in her leg was not attended to and ended up getting terribly infected.
So make sure to get yourselves checked regularly. Eat right and exercise!! Apparently exercising can lower your blood sugar levels.
More power to Doc Mike, George Tan and others involved in this campaign!
