HEARD:Jaya Ramsey diagnosed with diabetes


Jaya Ramsey

Singer-TV host Jaya Ramsey on being a Type 2 diabetic: “It’s the most common form. I was diagnosed with it shortly after I gave birth to my first child. What’s good about this type is that you can get off medication as soon as you are able to cut down on foods that are bad for you. Disiplina lang. Tumodo kasi ako. I wasn’t able to monitor my food intake—lumamon nang lumamon!” Marinel R. Cruz

      Ngayon lang ako nakabasa na ang isang celebrity ang nagbabalita na may diabetes siya.  Kung cancer puwede pa.

    Many Filipinos are Type II diabetics and not know it because of the lack of information or medical care.  As a diabetic for many years it is good that Jaya is pro-active.  It can be controlled with diet (white rice is notorious, I only eat 2 tbsp of rice per meal), exercise, home glucose monitoring and regular followup with your doctor.  Unfortunately, despite of all the care, many diabetics still have complications such as kidney disease, eye issues, limb numbness-circulation problems, heart complications etc. IMHO, I hope our countrymen and goverment put more attention to this potentially devastating health issue.

    may tanong lang ako:
    BAKIT ‘RAMSEY’ at di yung last name nung mister niya ang gamit niya?
