According to the International Diabetes Federation, the number of people with living with diabetes has quadrupled since 1980 to more than 400 million 2 . In Malaysia, some 3.5 million or 17.5% of Malaysian adults above the age of 18 years of age have been diagnosed with diabetes 3 . This alarming figures only confirms, that every Malaysian has a role to play in addressing this public health concern,” remarked Ms Emilyn Loo, Country Business Manager, Nestlé Health Science.
