    Herbalife Nutrition Continues Supporting Korean Diabetes Society

SEOUL--(Korea Newswire) May 07, 2020 -- Herbalife Nutrition Korea, a premier global nutrition company, announced that it has entered into a collaboration agreement with the Korean Diabetes Society(KDS) for the fifth consecutive year.

The KDS is a non-profit corporation, established in 1995 under the auspice of the Korean Ministry of Health and Welfare, dedicated to prevention and treatment of diabetes through a wide range of programs developed in alignment with the national health policies.

In 2016, Herbalife Nutrition Korea was the first company to sign a sponsorship agreement with the KDS. Since then, Herbalife Nutrition Korea has been spearheading efforts to support a variety of diabetes-related education and public awareness programs organized by KDS.

General Manager and Vice President of Herbalife Nutrition Korea YoungHee Chung said, “Diabetes has become a major public health concern in the country. We are glad to work with the Korean Diabetes Society to support them in their efforts to further the education and prevention of the disease. As “prevention is better than cure,”one of the ways to reduce the risk of diabetes is to maintain healthy body weight through regular physical activity and a healthy diet.”

Formerly, diabetes was regarded to affect the middle-aged, however, in recent years, is has become increasingly prevalent among young people in Korea because many of them are physically inactive and have unhealthy eating habits. According to the Korea National Health Insurance Service, the number of diabetes patients in their 20s rose 38.9% over the five-year period between 2013 and 2017 - from 17,000 to 24,000. Like other non-communicable diseases, increased public awareness in all age groups of diabetes and healthy lifestyle choices have become ever-more important for diabetes prevention.

Each year, Herbalife Nutrition Korea supports diabetes training courses, blood glucose monitoring campaigns and diabetes training camps organized by the KDS. The company also provides its balanced nutrition products, such as ‘Formula 1 Healthy Meal’, to participants of training sessions hosted by the KDS, to encourage them to make healthier choices.
