Health Ministry never endorsed substitute product to treat diabetes

KUALA LUMPUR: The Health Ministry has never endorsed any product or food that can replace medicines including insulin to treat diabetes and control blood sugar levels.

This was following the action of a Facebook page, “Myspringshop-US” which claimed that they were selling a tea product that has been certified by the Health Ministry.

The page was also found using edited photographs aimed at misleading the public, Health Ministry said in a statement on its official Facebook page on Tuesday (April 19).

As such, the Health Ministry advised the public not to be easily deceived and influenced by claims made by any party using information or statement that had not been verified. – Bernama
