THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO SEEING A DERMATOLOGIST IN SINGAPORE (2018)
February 1st, 2018

I'm writing this post because "recommend me a good dermatologist in Singapore" is one of the questions I'm most often asked by friends -  Now I can just direct them to this post.

Incidentally, "dermatologist Singapore" is also one of the most Googled terms in Singapore, receiving over 3700 searches each month - so I figured I'd just help everyone else out by explaining in detail how to find a suitable dermatologist for your condition and treatment needs in Singapore.

WHICH HEALTH SCREENING TESTS DO YOU REALLY NEED IN SINGAPORE?
February 1st, 2018

It's a common scenario in Singapore - your dad or mom receives a letter offering free "basic" health screening services, usually in the form of a tie-up with the company where he or she's working at.

So when my dad asked me last night:

What are the essential tests I should go for?

I had a glance through of what was on offer: 5 pages worth of optional add-ons to the free basic screen, ranging from cancer marker tests, to mind-boggling X-Rays and ultrasound scans.

I'M A CARB-HATING SINGAPOREAN. IS THAT AN OXYMORON? (A DOCTOR'S TAKE ON THE LOW CARB DIET)
January 29th, 2018

In the hierarchy of foods to eat when I'm training for sports and fitness, protein and healthy fats come right at the top, and carbs stay right at the bottom. The less carbs I get in my meal, the better.

I've been asked - "But, DON'T YOU NEED CARBS FOR ENERGY?"

Here's the TLDR answer: No.

WHY HANGOVERS FEEL TERRIBLE, AND A FEW PERSONAL HANGOVER HACKS
January 29th, 2018

It's Saturday morning - You went all out with the champagne last night at Zouk/Bang Bang and didn't bother with any of the 8 hangover prevention steps I covered in my previous post. Every time you try to get out of bed and do something useful, the world looks like this:

8 DOCTOR TRIED-AND-TESTED HANGOVER PREVENTION METHODS
January 29th, 2018

There's actually a medical term for hangovers after drinking - "veisalgia". Most of what you feel during a hangover are down to 2 factors - dehydration, and a toxic byproduct of alcohol called acetaldehyde circulating in your system. In fact, there's an anti-alcohol abuse drug (disulfiram) that works by inhibiting the liver enzyme which breakdowns acetyledehyde. This makes addicts who continue drinking feel like shit even faster.

Should I get checked for C. Difficile if I have a stomachache, cramps and hard stools after an antibiotics course?

Hi Curiouscat, Based on your story alone, it's very unlikely that you have C. Diff, nor do you need to worry about getting tested for it, especially because (I presume) that you are fairly young. C. Diff causes really smelly diarrhoea, and usually happens in the hospitalised elderly after a prolonge...

Could I have a heart problem if I have a heavy heart, weary legs, and ECG T Wave inversion?

Hi Isuhendro, As Dr Yan Yuan suggested, I’d strongly suggest that she visit a GP for a formal consultation. As pointed out, she has clear risk factors for heart disease, especially in the context of experiencing symptoms such as a heavy heart and fatigue. It’s worth noting that certain ECG abnormali...

Can I stop taking Roaccutane early if my acne has cleared up?

Hi Chia, great to hear that your face has cleared up! However, I personally I wouldn't stop Roaccutane prematurely before you have completed the course. As Dr Jiwei has mentioned, there is a target dosage of 120mg/kg to "hit" in order to complete the regimen. Studies have shown it is the total cumul...

Could I have colon cancer if I have a history of piles and blood on passing motion?

Hi Lee – thanks for your question. Some risk factors of colon cancer are as follows: Age > 50 Family history of cancer/colon cancer Smoker Obesity If you have any of these, then it’s definitely worthwhile going to see your doctor to have it checked out. He can easily risk stratify you from your hist...

Is it harmful to take long term contraceptive pills (Yasmin) without any breaks?

Hi Cass, Great question. In short, the answer is no, there are no harmful effects or complications with taking the Pill long term, assuming you are in good health (apart from the normal side effects/risks associated with taking the combined oral contraceptive pill, like Yasmin, which your gynae shou...

Am I more at risk of blood clots if I have a broken fifth metatarsal fracture and go on a long-haul flight?

Hi Belinda, Sorry to hear about your foot. Yes, long haul flights and bone fractures are both risk factors for blood clots, amongst other factors. You should take the necessary precautions against developing clots if you do decide to travel. Overall however, the likelihood of developing a clot, in t...

EPI-Lasik vs ReLEx® Smile vs LASIK, which degree correcting procedure should I choose?

Hi Bren, thanks for your question. Relex smile wasn’t available as an option at the time I did my Lasik. It’s a much newer procedure. Having said that, I’d still have chosen Lasik if both were available. In medicine, there’s generally a ten year period with each procedure where patients are closely ...

What are effective methods to reduce pore size? Are lasers able to minimise pores permanently?

Hi Glg, Dr YZ made some excellent points regarding laser treatment, and reducing pore size. As he mentioned, Venus Viva RF treatment is an effective treatment for large pores. “How do I reduce my pore size” is a very common question. There are a couple of useful tricks to reduce pore size, depending...

Is the Venus Viva or Acnexel machine more effective for acne scar treatment?

Hi Diamond, You can refer to Dr Irenaeus’ guide for the most effective acne scar treatments in Singapore. As explained in his post, the treatment which produces the best results really depends on the type of acne scar, as well as your skin type. It also often requires a combination approach with dif...

Is it possible to be rid of acne and bumps on my face entirely?

Hi Ice, If you want a permanent fix, oral accutane is still your best option. About 2 in 3 people will not have any acne issues after completing a course of oral accutane. Even if they do, any recurring acne tends to be much less severe. Unfortunately, not everyone can be permanently rid of acne aft...
