As Malaysians, we all love a variety of food! Although these foods can spark joy! There should be a certain measure to it, if not there will be lots of consequences.

One of the most common consequences is Type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is a disease that affects your body’s ability to produce or use insulin. Unfortunately, when the body is unable to produce or utilize insulin, there must be treatments done to “Stay Alive”.

RM2750 minimum per year is required for the treatment cost per year for a diabetic patient. Here’s the breakdown:

  1. Full Blood Test (2 times a year) RM320
  2. Blood test device (once only) RM150
  3. Test Strips (for 12 months) RM1080
  4. Medication (for 12 months) RM720
  5. Doctor’s fees (6 times a year) RM480

So are you still thinking of drinking that bubble milk tea every 2 days? Or you want a body that is diabetes free?

Not only that, 1 in 2 person that experience heart attacks are diagnose with diabetes and 2 in 5 stroke cases have diabetes complications.

Both (Heart attack/Stroke) of these conditions can cost up to RM100,000 on itself!!!

Even kidney failure which 25% of diabetes patients experience this condition, each hemodialysis cost RM150-RM250 per session. The patient will have to do 3x/week which result in an extra minimum cost of RM1800/month. That would be another RM21,600/year + the direct cost of RM2750 = RM24,350…

Add this up with: 

  1. Taking unpaid leave for your condition
  2. Valuable time traveling for your condition
  3. Emotional breakdown
  4. Time & energy of your friends and family taking care of your conditions

 *Which most of it is priceless that we sometimes take for granted

So before you sit down & put that sugary food in your mouth………………………………………………………………………………………………………THINK TWICE!!!!!!
