The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has detected the presence of an unregistered product, DIABOOST, being marketed on social media, by 36TY Courier Services, located at Ritz Junction, Madina. The product is being marketed as a product that kills diabetes and normalizes blood sugar levels after first use, among others. These claims are false. The product is in fact labelled as a food supplement, not a medication and thus cannot be used in the treatment of diabetes.
DIABOOST is not registered by the FDA. For this reason, its efficacy, quality, and most importantly, safety for diabetics cannot be guaranteed by the Authority. The Authority wishes to advise all diabetics to strictly adhere to prescribed treatment by their doctors and discuss any alternative treatment with them as well to avoid any complications.
DIABOOST is manufactured in Bulgaria for SPB, REALTY LTD, 1 HAN ASPARUH STR., BURGAS, BULGARIA and distributed in Ghana by 36TY Courier Service, headed by Ms. Mary Alimena, who is currently assisting the Police with the investigation.
The FDA is by this notice asking all persons who have the product to stop using them immediately and return them to the nearest FDA office or to the supplier.
The Authority wishes to encourage the public to check the registration status of all regulated products from the FDA website, www.fdaghana.gov.gh and the ProPer Platform (https://bit.ly?ProPerFDA-Verify) before purchase in order to avoid any harm.
The FDA exist to ensure the safety, quality and efficacy of human and veterinary drugs, food, biological products, cosmetics, medical devices, household chemical substances and clinical trials, and the control of tobacco products through the enforcement of relevant standards to protect public health.
