Retailer of the week: Jose Ramon Syquia Felix, The Diabetes Store general manager
With over 422 million diabetes in the world and an estimated 8 million diabetics in the Philippines alone, Jose Ramon Syquia Felix decided to take action by opening “The Diabetes Store” (TDS) earlier this year.
Inspired by the struggles of his own father, a diabetic, Syquia Felix decided to open the first one-stop-shop for diabetics in the Philippines and tackle the incurable disease by following “The 5Cs of Diabetes” – check, control, consume, care, counsel.TDS advises patients, provides diet plan and appropriate exercise programmes, reminds them about doctors’ appointments and keeps tabs on medication… And of course, TDS offers special food and accessories for diabetics, such as heel protectors, insoles and socks.
