Health & Diabetes

To be honest, I haven’t think of my personal health for a long time and many had asked me why I didn’t do exercise & eat correctly.

I pondered for a long time and to find out that my dad had suffered from high blood pressure & diabetes finally woken me up.

Recently, my twitter friend @avnjl invited me to a Health & Diabetes workshop at Fitness Force Gym at CairnHill CC at No. 1 Anthony Road on the 10th of December 2010.

During the workshop, I had learnt that 1 in every 2 adults in Singapore will suffer from Diabetes in their lifetime and majority of the diabetes is of type 2 or maturity onset type that affects people in their middle age.

A diabetic person spent LOTS of money a year for outpatient care at a polyclinic (if not under welfare) and it’s almost impossible to totally cure from diabetes but only able to control it’s symptoms.
