KUALA LUMPUR: The Health Ministry says it has never certified any product or food that can replace proper medication.
In a Facebook post on Sunday (Nov 6) it said this included the use of insulin to treat diabetes and control blood sugar as recently claimed by a portal.
The ministry said the claim was irresponsible and that the picture used was a modified picture from its website (http://myhealth.gov.my) aimed at misleading consumers.
“The ministry calls on the public not to be deceived and influenced by statements and portals whose claims are unverified,” read the post. – Bernama
