Manage Your Diabetes with Glucerna® Challenge Me ❤

Number of diabetes in Malaysia is alarming. The number of adults to be affected by diabetes in Malaysia is increasing and Malaysia is the number one country in Asean for having the highest number of diabetics. Definitely this is not something that we should be proud of and all of us must work together and help to educate the public on the importance of prevention and maintenance of the disease. 

The new Glucerna with the Triple Care System is the ONLY diabetes nutrition product

Last month, I was invited to attend this Glucerna® Challenge Me event with a group of invited bloggers to learn more about the issue of diabetes and how Glucerna® Challenge Me can help the diabetics to manage their condition better.

Diabetes Mellitus (DM), or more commonly known as diabetes, refers to a group of diseases that affect how your body uses body glucose, commonly called blood sugar. Glucose is vital to your health because it's an important source of energy for the cells that make up your muscles and tissues.


Exercising and eating a healthy diet, which can include diabetes specific nutritional products like Glucerna®, can have a big impact on your health. Glucerna® provides a unique system of ingredients to help patients manage their blood glucose levels, weight and cholesterol. It can help to reduce weight when used as part of an overall diabetes management plan. Dr Shaalani Ramachandran introduced to us the Glucerna® Challenge Me! during the event too.
 


Besides that, we also had the opportunity to learn baking from Miss Suraya. Who says that diabetics can't have sweet tooth? With cupcakes infused with Glucerna®, you can have less sugar desserts! Hooray! Miss Suraya taught us steps by steps on how to bake Hokkaido cake in pandan flavor. I personally love eating Hokkaido cake and this would be my first time trying out the pandan flavour! Yay! :D 

The cupcakes were almost done! :D

We also get to decorate the cupcakes with the provided ingredients too. There were so many creative decorations and two of the bloggers won the best decorated cupcakes on that day! Congrats to them! :D And sorry for my ugly decoration. Not really good at decorating food. =/


My ugly decorations on the cupcakes. :P
