MANILA – Health app KonsultaMD announced Wednesday the availability of a package tailored for persons with diabetes and those who may be at risk of this condition.

“We recognize the difficulties many people experience in finding the right tools to address their health problems. So we are helping them take the first step in achieving a healthier lifestyle,” said KonsultaMD chief executive officer Cholo Tagaysay.

The app will provide free video consultation for lab test interpretation. Home lab tests such as FBS, CBC, CREA, lipid profile, urinalysis, and HBA1C are also included in the diabetes screening package.
