According to their study, 1 out of 10 Filipinos have Type 2 Diabetes (T2DM). The difference of it versus Type 1 Diabetes are characterized by insufficient insulin production and/or inability to respond its effects.


Dr. Roberto Mirasol gave us on the T2DM on a global scale. So far, Asians are more prone to this medical problem compared to Caucasians mainly of the carbo-based diet. Inactivity was another main cause. 


Dr. Rima Lim explained more on the effects of T2DM.

It is highly selective and reversible inhibitor or sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) that works independently of insulin to hep remove excess glucose from the body The product prevents glucose from re-entering the circulation, causing it to be released thru urine. In their tests, it can release 70 grams of glucose per day.
