As we age, we become more prone to diseases that stop us from wanting to trek high mountains, visit our high school friends in far places and continue our favorite gardening routine. One of the diseases that affected 380 million lives worldwide in 2013 is diabetes.

In the Philippines, diabetes hit 9.7% of the adult population in 2012. Studies have it that 1 in 5 Filipino adults has diabetes or prediabetes.
