KORONADAL CITY, Philippines — Not only the barangay folks are availing the “free blood sugar testing” of City Councilor Peachy “Lotlot” Ogoy but also the fitness sector here.
The objective of conducting the free “blood sugar testing” is to help the people monitor their blood sugar level and to help raise citywide awareness against the harmful effects of diabetes if left unattended.
It is an advocacy initiative of Konsehal Ogoy that objectively wanted to promote “health conscious community” and raise awareness against diabetes to mitigate its impact on people’s health and emotional aspects.
She (Konsehal Ogoy) started it months before the outbreak COVID-19 pandemic last year.
KARAKASA, a famous fitness group here, thanked Konsehal Ogoy for initiating “free blood sugar testing” activity that helped its officers and members monitor their blood sugar levels after doing hours of exercises.
“Ang grupo sang KARAKASA FITNESS ASSOCIATION nagapasalamat kay ang mga member naka-avail sang libre nga blood sugar test. Dira makita naton kung may progress ang aton mga activities sa Karakasa,” KARAKASA Fitness Association Vice President Benjie Alboro told Diyaryo Milenyo Digital News (through Ms. Resh Simba).
Margie Arnaiz, a member of KARAKASA, said: “Salamat kay Concilor Ogoy nabigyan kami ng chance na atleast mamonitor natin ang status ng blood sugar natin para atleast ma-aware din tayo sa health natin.” #DM
