“Sweet” is probably not their favorite word, but just to lighten the mood, I opted to use the term anyway. I am just excited to write about this and I hope you guys can help me spread the word because people who are troubled with diabetes really deserve to know this. Why? Because their overwhelming fight against this disease is beyond words. Do a quick inventory of your loved ones and acquaintances and I bet there maybe a few of them who are affected by diabetes. It’s been said that approximately 8 million Filipinos have this disease. Instead of visiting the ordinary stores, they seriously need to visit Diabetes Store (TDS) on a regular basis.
The Diabetes Store (TDS), the first and only offering of its kind is a friendly one-stop shop that believes in a collaborative approach in managing diabetes by working closely with the patient’s doctor and family members.
The Diabetes Store offers a wide variety of products and services to suit all the needs of people with diabetes; from medicines, ready-to-eat meals, nutritious and low-sugar snacks, zero-calorie sweeteners, to testing services and diabetes counseling. TDS is staffed by trained Diabetes Educators (DEs) who are skilled and knowledgeable in managing diabetes. The DEs educate the patients on their diabetic condition and empower them to manage their lifestyle.
“We believe in holistic care which encompasses both medical and other interventions such as education and psychosocial support which increase compliance”, said Dr. Danilo Baldemor of the Institute for Diabetes Foundation (ISDF).
According to Ramon Felix, General Manager of TDS, “the development of TDS’ online website and its physical venue are a plus, and is one-of-a-kind in the country. The products and services are accessible everywhere with the online shopping website www.thediabetesstore.com.ph
A diabetic patient – Ms. Nedy Tejada is a member of The Diabetes Store Community Membership Club. For an annual fee of P499, she is able to avail of enjoying exclusive perks and discounts such as a 5% discount on The Diabetes Store products, diabetes education modules, and services and others.
More than just a transactional outlet, The Diabetes Store (TDS) engages with people – from the doctors to the patients and their families to better manage their condition so that those with diabetes can live normal and fulfilling lives. Dr. Ma. Cecilia Cruz of the Philippine Society of Diabetes and Endocrinology (PSEM) advises, “that we need to prevent the complications of diabetes such as blindness, amputation and kidney failure which are all costly to treat and reduce one’s quality of life.”
Visit the Diabetes Store at 198 J. Elizalde St. BF Homes, Paranaque City or call them at 801-8553 and 806-9267. You may also check out their website at www.thediabetesstore.com.ph
