Do you think you are at risk of developing diabetes or prediabetes?
You can now take a simple test via a website created for the Let’s Make A Change campaign, to find out.
The campaign, which is a joint effort by Merck Malaysia and Diabetes Malaysia, aims to raise awareness about prediabetes and how managing the condition can stop or delay it reported Malay Mail.
Living with diabetes
“Here at Diabetes Malaysia, we fully understand how challenging it may be to live with or care for someone with diabetes.
“It is better to tackle the disease when it is still in the prediabetic stage, particularly if it is detected early.
“Depending on the patient, diabetes may not be preventable, but treating prediabetes offers an opportunity to at least delay it,” said Diabetes Malaysia president Professor Datuk Dr Ikram Shah Ismail.
Meanwhile, Merck Malaysia’s president and managing director Christoph Hamann said the website allows Malaysians to take ownership of their health.
