What you need to know about DIABETES


Diabetes is one of the most common illnesses among many Filipinos. However, did you know that you can have diabetes and be unaware of it? To prevent diabetes from becoming more serious, you should be aware of important medical facts so you’ll be able to treat it properly.

Many people are being affected by diabetes, and some aren’t even aware that they have it. Poorly managed diabetes can lead to severe health complications such as heart disease, blindness, kidney failure, and a blood vessel disease that may require amputation. That is why it’s vital to learn more about diabetes and if needed, seek proper treatment immediately,” says MediCard president and CEO Dr. Nicky Montoya.

Here’s what you need to know about diabetes:

What is diabetes? Diabetes is a health complication wherein the body either can’t produce insulin or does not use insulin properly. Insulin is a hormone that enables the body to use glucose that is found in food for energy. There are several types of diabetes but the most common ones are Type 1, where the pancreas does not produce insulin; and Type 2, where the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or the body does not use insulin properly.

What are its symptoms? People with diabetes experience frequent urination, excessive thirst, constant hunger, irritability, blurry vision, extreme and unexplained fatigue, wounds or cuts that are slow to heal, weight loss even if you are eating more, and tingling,
numbness or pain in the hands and feet. In some cases, individuals with diabetes don’t
show any symptoms. That is why it is very important to visit your doctor regularly for check-ups.

What are its complications? People with diabetes are more at risk of having other serious health problems. They are more prone to infections. High glucose levels and high blood pressure can also lead to cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, nerve disease and eye diseases, among others. To avoid complications, it’s important to regularly monitor
and maintain your blood glucose levels, blood pressure and cholesterol.

How is it treated? To prevent complications of diabetes, Dr. Montoya recommends that diabetics should have a meal plan prescribed by a dietitian. Eating healthy and engaging in physical activities will help the body break down insulin better and convert glucose into energy. Some need to take insulin injections and oral agents, pills which help diabetics
produce more insulin or utilize insulin better. Always remember to visit a diabetes specialist regularly to monitor your glucose level.

What should I do to prevent diabetes? To reduce your risk of diabetes, get moving and have a regular exercise routine like 30 minutes of walking a day. Dr. Montoya also recommends reducing your consumption of alcohol and processed sugars such as candies and sodas while adding more food rich in mono unsaturated fats in your diet like avocados, nuts and olive oil.

Catholic Church appeals to #ResurrectLove

"As Jesus has risen, let us also #ResurrectLove in our relationships, our society and our lives.’

This is the Easter message that Radio Veritas 846, TV Maria, Catholic Media Network and Caritas Manila want to convey in their social experiment video titled, “The Lazarus Project”.

Launched on Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017, the Lazarus Project shows the reaction of people seeing typically subject to judgment: An escort, a gay couple, a homeless man, and a transgender attending a Holy Mass.

In the video, Radio Veritas President and Caritas Manila Executive Director Rev. Fr. Anton C.T. Pascual explained the true meaning of Jesus Christ’s resurrection in his Easter homily. “First of all, God rose from the dead for all of mankind: men, women, even gays. Christ’s resurrection was for all of us. Rich or poor, young or old, in all walks of life, whether you have had an education or not, Christ was resurrected for all of us, most especially for those who have sinned,” Fr. Pascual said. He then said that the Lord is calling everyone to resurrect the capacity to forgive and love especially to those who need it most.

Radio Veritas President and Caritas Manila Executive Director Rev. Fr. Anton C.T. Pascual

“God who loves us unconditionally, the Lord who loves us eternally and has risen from the dead is now calling upon us to come to Him. We who are tired, who are troubled in this world, who are lost, who have done wrong and have sinned, let us all come to the Lord. Whatever sin we have committed, that is all in the past. The Lord has forgiven you. Offered his life for you and has risen again so you may live in comfort, joy, and freedom,” Fr. Pascual added.

This initiative aims to reach and remind all people of different walks of life, regardless of race, color, gender, or social status that they belong, and that God and the Church accepts and loves everyone without judgement.As what Pope Francis said, “The Church is a place of mercy and hope where everyone is welcomed, loved, and forgiven.”

His Eminence Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle, D.D., in his homily during Palm Sunday Mass in April 9, 2017 at the Manila Cathedral, said that the acceptance of Jesus Christ means acceptance of His presence among the poor and the oppressed.

“Accepting the real Jesus is accepting His presence among the poor; those who get spat at and insulted in the society; those who kept silent even when they are being slapped. But they are the ones who have dignity because only God knows the truth. And that’s how Jesus is, and that’s how we should follow Him,” the Cardinal said.

Currently, the video has a total of 370, 000 views, 8,100 reactions, and over 7,600 shares from the Veritas Facebook page alone. The public may view the social experiment video at the Radio Veritas 846 Facebook page, Veritas846.ph, and share it using the official hashtag, #ResurrectLove.

Our Dada is not a Good Father

"The greatest GIFT a father can do for his children is to love their mother." - John Wooden


Have you seen the latest video ad of UNILAB? If I personally knew the brilliant mind behind the ad, I would think that he/she based the concept on our story,my family's story. I would have asked for a payment for the rights. Lol.

Watch this Video .

I grew up in a family where Biogesic, Neozep, Solmux are readily available when needed.

Lately I've been under the weather, so it's hard for me to do even simple household chores. As the old saying goes" bawal magkasakit ang mga nanay, walang magaalaga". But in our case, I'm grateful that I have MITD with me and proud of him. He's got my back. I'm such a lucky mum. Let me do some bragging here. For almost 11 long years, he's never let me wash our clothes. Yes! I don't know if he doesn't trust my ability or he just loves me that much. I hope it's the latter. I know, I'm one spoiled momma. That's why I can't complain if my fave white shirt was stained by a colored shirt.

When UNILAB had this Enervon "share happiness" campaign, I joined. I wanted MITD to be happy naman. A simple way of showing I appreciate everything he has done and been doing to our family.

Couple of years ago, when meningioma happened to me. MITD was the father and the mother of our home. Until now he would do  some chores before going to work to make sure everything we need for the day are set and clean.(squeaky clean house, our food,my meds, kids taken their Ceelin) And when he arrives at night, he would still do some more. That makes him not a good father, but the BEST Dada in the world. Makes me feel so loved. Ako na si Rapunzel ang haba ng hair.

Our Family's trusted quality healthcare through the years, Unilab yan!
