Agustin Tanco Foundation, PhilCare lead fight against Diabetes

Statistics in 2008 show that 3.5 million Filipinos suffer from Diabetes Mellitus, a metabolism disorder that affects the body’s reaction to glucose or sugar when it is not broken down by insulin. Aside from this staggering number, 5% are still undetected, while another 8% are pre-diabetic.
