KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA, November 23, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- With a population of around 30 million, Malaysia is home to one of the highest number of diabetics in Asia. Health centers across the nation work hard to spread awareness about diabetes – its causes, management and negative health impact are highlighted on various platforms.

Ms. Lila emphasized that community events are a great way to bring together a responsive and attentive audience. In her words, "… awareness is all about being receptive to what is being presented and advised. Participants at community events are in a more positive frame of mind, the atmosphere is a friendly mixture of learning and social interaction … the perfect setting for this event … "
Medical advisers at the event talked about the direct relation between eating and blood sugar levels. Breakfast was arranged for all participant who were encouraged to have a blood test done, before and after the breakfast. This turned out to be one of the most effective ways to explain, the importance of choosing the right foods and monitoring the quantity and time for each meal.
