As the content manager of Slim Snacks PH, we feel it’s our responsibility to raise awareness about the rising cases of diabetes worldwide, including in the Philippines. According to data from the DOST-FNRI, the prevalence of diabetes in the Philippines has increased from 5.6% in 2013 to 8.2% in 2019. Furthermore, around 14.2% of the population already have prediabetes, meaning that they are at high risk of developing diabetes in the future. When we combine the prevalence of diabetes and prediabetes, one out of every five Filipinos has abnormal glucose levels.
