Our Clinic is Medisave accredited under the Chronic Disease Management Programme. This means you may use your Medisave to help offset your outpatient charges for chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol disorders and stroke. For eligibility criteria and further details, please refer to the Ministry of Health website at Medisave CDMP
In general, you need to fast for 8 hours before cholesterol (lipid) and pre-breakfast blood sugar (glucose) tests. Plain water is permitted. There may be other specialised endocrine tests which need fasting as well. Please check with us if in doubt.
While common endocrine illnesses like diabetes are generally chronic, they can be well-controlled with the right treatment. Other forms such as certain endocrine tumours causing hypertension (high blood pressure) and electrolyte disturbances are potentially curable if discovered and treated in the early stages.
