Liputan6.com, Jakarta Diabetes is a serious health problem, especially in Indonesia. According to the Ministry of Health (Kemenkes) on its official website, Indonesia is ranked 7th among the top 10 countries with diabetes in the world based on research conducted by the International Diabetes Federation in 2019.
Unexpectedly, diabetes has become a serious problem as it triggers a variety of deadly diseases such as heart disease, kidney failure and the leading cause of blindness.
This appears to have become a serious concern for Siswono Yudo Husodo, a former Minister of State for Public Housing and Minister of Transmigration and Labor in the era of President Soeharto.
At an event charity titled 50 Years of Work by Hetty Koes Endang at Pullman Jakarta hotel, on Saturday, December 3, 2022, Siswono took part in performing a blood sugar test held by Biotek Pharmaceutical Indonesia.
The method was simple, Siswono just did a Current Blood Sugar (GDS) test and then took a medication Dialance from Biotek Pharmaceutical Indonesia and wait 90 to 120 minutes to perform the second test.
The results were surprising, the second test showed a significant drop in blood sugar from 167 to 145 which surprised the former minister.
“Very practical. There are no side effects, no reactions whatsoever. I think it is very good,” Siswono said in a written statement on Thursday (8/12/2022).
