This Singapore Endocrinologist Shares Tips For Treating Hirsutism
This Singapore Endocrinologist Shares Tips For Treating Hirsutism

Hirsutism refers to excessive male pattern hair growth seen in women. Whether it's hair growth that develops in the upper lip, limbs, or chin, hirsutism is generally considered an undesirable body characteristic.

However, hirsutism is experienced by women in Singapore more often than you think. In fact, a 20-year-old DoctorxDentist reader mentioned in a post that she had been living with hirsutism for a long time (even though her menses were regular and she didn't have any acne).

She wondered what treatment options were available for hirsutism in Singapore. Endocrinologist Dr Abel Soh responded to her question regarding hirsutism as a condition and how to manage it. Here's what he shared.

Dr Abel Soh, a Singaporean endocrinologist, responded with an in-depth explanation of what it means to develop diabetes, especially when it runs in the family. Here's what he had to share.
