Diabetes is widely known as a silent disease since the average diabetic has been living with it for almost 10 years before they are diagnosed.

GERATEC’s Nutrition Services Manager Ide-Marie Venter reveals that many downplay its severity due to its slow progression.

Ide-Marie encourages older persons, their families, and care partners to regularly screen for high blood sugar levels since early detection is the major preventative measure to prevent diabetes-related health concerns.

Watch as she discusses fundamental factors about nutrition and diabetes.

There’s a misconception that being diagnosed can translate to a life of tasteless boiled food, a common practice found in many catering companies.

GERATEC’s special dietary plans catered to each individual’s needs, incorporated with lifestyle changes, increase the quality of life for older persons.
