CHOLESTEROL AND GLUCOSE SCREENING

In collaboration with our kind sponsors, Xepa-Soul Pattinson, we are providing
FREE Cholesterol and Glucose blood screenings
for our patients.

For the initial period, the screening promotion will only be available at
our new clinic at nex Shopping Mall #01=54/55.

Patients aged 35 years and above
can call us at Tel: 6634 4918 or visit our clinic personally for registration.
Both new and old patients are welcome.

The blood sampling, laboratory tests and review of the results only are FREE. Blood pressure readings will also be taken at the same visit.

For our patients at AMK and Novena who are interested, you can also leave your particulars and contacts with our staff in the meantime. We are planning similar screening promotions as well at a later date.

For the general population aged 40 years and older, routine health screening is recommended for diabetes, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol and obesity. For females, additional screening is also recommended for breast and cervical cancer.

For more reading on health issues and education, we recommend patients to visit the
Health Promotion Board Online website which provides good reading material on many common diseases and conditions. http://www.hpb.gov.sg/diseases/default.aspx
