Jacob Lachmandas – Singapore

Jacob was in the process of planning a diabetes camp. The focus was on teaching people how to tackle high blood sugar after consuming junk food.

People with diabetes were given unhealthy foods such as fried food and desserts with simple sugars. They then learnt how to avoid having prolonged high blood sugar. This has prepared them for occasions when they have to eat unhealthy foods such as during birthday parties. This was a step to end the misconception that people with diabetes need to be on a strict diet 24/7.
