Diabetes is a battle that most Filipinos are fighting over the years. To date, our country has over 11 million with pre-diabetes or already diabetic. So in the efforts of making us more healthy and help manage diabetes, Abbott is introducing the Glucerna 1-2-3 Challenge. This free program includes healthy habits and really useful resources to manage diabetes and have a healthy lifestyle altogether. 

The Glucerna 1-2-3 Challenge is a unique 12-week program on both online and mobile resources for people who wants an easy plan in creating a healthy meal, step-by-step video exercises and specialized nutrition plan such as Glucerna Triple Care.
