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.

As one of the leading causes of deaths in the Philippines and in the world, diabetes is a disease that does not discriminate. It strikes anyone—regardless of age or gender. If it goes undeterred, the World Health Organization (WHO) projected that by 2030, the number of diabetics around the world will reach 334 million people.
