Together We Can Stop Diabetes!

Saturday, June 4, 2016


A month after being launched, the first 28 of the initial 51 enrollees to Model Court's Year-Long Diabetes Awareness Program lined up to have their FBS blood samples tested and profiled for reference.

The FBS sampling was conducted by a team led by professional nurses, namely Bro. Carlo Valmonte of the Paulino J. Garcia Memorial Research and Medical Center and Bro. Jomari Valino of the Cabantuan City MV Gallego General Hospital, both of Model Lodge No. 373, who provided their services for free.

The collected blood samples shall be analyzed by medical specialists and will be the main reference in evolving an appropriate year-long blood sugar reduction program for members of Model Lodge No. 373 and Model Court No. 55 who are the main beneficiaries of the project.

Aside from the blood samples, the blood pressures of the enrollees were also collected and recorded to assist in the diagnosis of individual FBS profiles. 

With the FBS profiling done, the next activity of the Year-Long Diabetes Awareness Program will be the interpretation of the results which will be conducted by a team of medical doctors under the supervision of the incumbent District Deputy Grand Royal Matron, SK Irineo Dones (MD).
