Body Mass Index (BMI)2020-07-07T10:25:52+08:00

The Body Mass Index (BMI) is calculated by BMI = Weight (in kg) / [Height x Height] (in metres).

BMI in kg/m² Weight Category*
More than or equal to 30 Obese
25-29.9 Overweight
18.5-24.9 Healthy weight
Less than 18.5 Underweight

*According to the World Health Organization for adults aged 18-69.

BMI less than 18.5 presents a risk of osteoporosis in the long term.

Obesity (BMI > 30) is associated with increased cardiac risk. 24.4% of our adult population is overweight & 6% are obese. Gradual weight loss of no more than 1kg/week is encouraged using a combination of exercise as well as caloric control.

Can I cancel after I have made a booking?2020-08-07T10:08:23+08:00

Yes, you can cancel your appointment by emailing [email protected] A refund will be made within 7 working days.

Blood Pressure2020-07-07T10:25:12+08:00

The blood pressure (BP) typically has 2 readings, a systolic reading which marks the peak blood pressure within the artery when the heart contracts, and a diastolic reading which marks the trough blood pressure within the artery when the heart relaxes before the next beat. Both readings are important in categorisation, and category limits apply to all irrespective of age and gender.

Category Systolic BP (mmHg) Diastolic BP (mmHg) (Heart muscle relax)
Normal Below 130 Below 85
High Normal Between 130 to 139 Between 85 to 89
Hypertension
(High Blood Pressure)
140 and above 90 & Above

If your blood pressure is in the High Normal category, it is important to focus on lifestyle change.

  1. Reduction of salt intake
  2. Regular exercise
  3. Management of stress

If blood pressure readings are in the hypertensive range, a 2nd reading taken at least 1 week apart is necessary to establish hypertension. Medication may be instituted if the readings remain high despite lifestyle measures described above.

In some instances, blood pressure readings may be on the low side i.e. systolic < 100 and/or diastolic < 60. Whilst this is not a diseased state, persistently low blood pressures may result in occasional giddiness.

The use of a home BP monitoring set is highly useful for monitoring blood pressure. We encourage a record of BP readings using either readily available health apps or manual records. Your doctor can then reliably depend on the blood pressure trend to guide your treatment.

What if I am not home at the time of the appointment?2020-08-06T11:43:08+08:00

It is important that you are available and have fasted at the appointed date and time at home.

Should you not be available, due to exceptional circumstances, you may reschedule a visit at any of our clinics <link> for health screening. However, if you choose to reschedule another homebased visit, a transportation charge of $20 will be levied.

What do I need to prepare for homebased screening?2020-08-06T11:44:03+08:00

You will need to fast for at least 6 hours prior to the appointed time. Consumption of plain water is encouraged. You may continue to take your regular medication, except for diabetic medication.

Kindly furnish any past medical or health screening records that you may have. We will also request verification of your NRIC/FIN/Passport.

What if I cannot provide a urine or stool specimen as required during the screening?2020-08-06T11:45:23+08:00

Should the required specimen not be available during our visit, you may drop them at any of our 8 clinics islandwide.

Tell me about the process? How long does it take?2020-08-06T11:46:06+08:00

A health screening visit at home will typically take 20 minutes.

Our Mobile Team who can be identified by their attire and/or pass ID will verify your identity as well as package and payment details. Further to a review of your medical history and supporting documents, we will conduct measurements of your blood pressure and weight.

Our staff are trained and certified in blood taking. Our team will obtain the specimen smoothly.

Who will be conducting the screening? Are they qualified and trained?2020-08-06T11:46:45+08:00

Our Mobile team are permanent staff of Minmed. They are trained and certified in blood taking and also undergo regular inhouse training so that they are equipped to serve you well.

When will the results be ready? How will I be notified?2020-08-06T11:47:21+08:00

The results will be ready within 1 working day. You will be notified via Email to download the results securely from our web portal.

Waist & Hip Ratio2020-07-07T10:22:23+08:00

Hip and waist measurements help to assess the relative distribution of fat in the abdominal region vs that of the hips and thigh. The Waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) is a useful determinant of risk.

WHR = Waist measurement / Hip measurement

Body Shape Health Risk
Apple – WHR above 0.8 for women, above 0.9 for men
If you have an “apple-shaped” body habitus, your waist size is larger than your hip size.
Most of the fat in an apple-shaped person is distributed around the internal organs in the abdomen area. This can be associated with a greater risk of heart disease, diabetes and stroke.
Pear – WHR below 0.8 for women, below 0.9 for men
If you are a pear type, your hip section is likely to be wider than your upper body, with most of the fat deposited around your thighs, hips and buttocks region.
Having a pear body shape indicates a lower metabolic risk compared to an apple body shape.
What should I do after I receive my health screening results?2020-08-06T11:49:17+08:00

Follow up of your health screening results is key.

Our health reports are designed to explain your results in a easy to understand manner. Please schedule a teleconsultation with our doctors at minmed.sg/review.

During the consultation, we will explain the nature of the findings, necessary lifestyle changes as well as appropriate referral or follow-up, if any. The post-screening teleconsultation is complimentary.

How can I arrange a teleconsult to review the results with a doctor?2020-08-06T11:50:33+08:00

You can arrange a Teleconsult here. During the consultation, we will explain the nature of the findings, necessary lifestyle changes as well as appropriate referral or follow-up, if any.

The post-screening teleconsultation is complimentary.

Fat Analysis2020-07-09T08:54:27+08:00

Body fat percentage is estimated using the bioelectrical impedence method. It is the proportion of the weight of body fat to the total body weight.

Gender Fat percentage
Males satisfactory range 10-20%
Females satisfactory range 20-30%

Increased visceral fat contributes to an increased risk of high cholesterol, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and stroke.

Reduction of dietary fat and oily/sugary foods, as well as a reduction in total caloric intake will help to reduce body fat.

How do I obtain vaccination follow up services?2020-08-11T10:43:43+08:00

Vaccination services are available at our clinics, you may also utilize medisave to cover the cost of selected vaccinations.

To know more about vaccinations, please visit this link.

Visual Acuity2020-07-09T08:55:08+08:00

Visual acuity is a measurement of a person’s ability to see distant objects well. This is assessed by way of individually testing each eye’s ability to read a series of numbers or letters on the “Snellen’s chart”. A person with poor visual acuity could have underlying issues with short-sightedness (myopia), astigmatism, cataract, or other eye diseases, and follow up with an assessment by a qualified optician and/or ophthalmologist is recommended.

Colour Deficiency2020-07-09T08:55:31+08:00

Colour perception is the ability of the eye to differentiate colours. A simple test with the Ishihara’s test will detect red-green colour deficiencies commonly known as colour-blindness. Colour blindness is typically an inherited genetic disorder, with males more commonly affected than females. Occasionally, acquired causes like disease, drugs and chemicals may cause it. There is no known cure, but diagnosis can alert the person to make certain adaptations and avoid certain occupations which require precise colour differentiation.

Fasting Blood Cholesterol2020-07-07T10:28:50+08:00

The lipid blood profile which has to be taken in the fasting state comprises the following:

  • Total cholesterol
  • HDL cholesterol (“Good” Cholesterol)
  • LDL cholesterol (“Bad” Cholesterol)
  • Total Cholesterol/HDL ratio
  • Triglyceride
Total Cholesterol Mmol/L Mg/dL
Desirable Below 5.2 Below  200
Borderline High Between 5.2 to 6.1 Between 200 to 239
High 6.2 & Above 240 & Above

 

HDL Mmol/L Mg/dL
Low Below 1.0 Below 40
Desirable Between 1.0 to 1.5 Between 40 to 59
High 1.6 & above 60 & above

 

LDL Mmol/L Mg/dL
Optimal Below 2.6 Below 100
Desirable Between 2.6 to 3.3 Between 100 to 129
Borderline High Between 3.4 to 4.0 Between 130 to 129
High Between 4.1 to 4.8 Between 160 to 129
Very High 4.9 & above 190 & above

 

Total/ HDL Ratio Mmol/L
Normal High
Below 4.5 4.5 and above

 

Triglycerides Mmol/L Mg/dL
Optimal Below 1.7 Below 150
Desirable Between 1.7 to 2.2 Between 150 to 199
Borderline High Between 2.3 to 4.4 Between 200 to 399
High 4.5 & above 400 & above

 

HDL is the good cholesterol in our body and is increased through exercise. High level of HDL reduces arthrosclerosis and the risk of heart attack.

LDL cholesterol is closely associated with increased risk of heart attack and stroke. Your doctor will assess your risk factors (diabetes, smoking, hypertension, family history) and prescribe medication for control if LDL levels are high.

LDL cholesterol is reduced through dietary discretion (intake of low cholesterol food), exercise and cessation of smoking.

Triglyceride is a form of fat often associated with elevated LDL and total cholesterol levels and uncontrolled diabetes. An elevation in triglyceride levels increases one’s risk of heart disease.

Fasting lipid blood profile is recommended annually for individuals above 40 years of age.

Fasting Blood Glucose2020-07-30T11:10:08+08:00

Glucose is the main carbohydrate used by the body and can be affected by dietary intake and hormones. The inability of the body to control sugar results in diabetes in the lightest which affects 9% of our adult population.

Blood Glucose Level Description
Below  6.0 mmol/L Blood glucose level is normal. No evidence of diabetes noted.
Between 6.1 to 6.9 mmol/L Blood glucose level may indicate presence of fasting hyperglycemia, impaired glucose tolerance or possible diabetes. Please consult your doctor for a repeat test or an oral glucose tolerance test as further evaluation.
7.0 mmol/L & Above Blood glucose level is high. Diabetes mellitus may be present, however a single measurement is not enough to make a diagnosis.
Diabetes symptom includes
– Lost of weight
– Excessive Thirst
– Increased frequency of urine
Please see your doctor for follow up. Meantime, maintain a healthy weight by reducing the intake of sweet & sugary foods. Have more complex carbohydrates such as polished, unpolished rice & whole meal bread. If you are a known diabetic, you should see your doctor for regular follow up on dietary and medical management.

Fasting blood sugar is recommended annually for individuals above 40 years of age.

Liver Function Test2020-07-07T10:29:56+08:00

The Liver function test comprises the following:

  • Total Protein
  • Albumin
  • Globulin
  • A/G Ratio
  • Total Bilirubin
  • Alkaline Phosphatase
  • ALT
  • AST
  • Gamma GT (GGT)


Elevations in liver enzymes (ALT, AST, GGT) are commonly noted and can be attributed to consumption of alcohol, consumption of medication, or as a result of chronic Hepatitis B infection.

Persons with known Hepatitis B infection should have this test repeated every 6 to 12 months as surveillance.

When derangements in liver enzymes are noted, your doctor will review your medical history and risk factors before suggesting a retest to monitor the trend and/or an ultrasound study of the liver as further work up.

Kidney Function Test2020-07-07T10:30:50+08:00

Our kidneys control the salt and water components and help to filter unwanted waste substances from our body.

The Kidney function test comprises the following:

  • Sodium
  • Potassium
  • Chloride
  • Urea
  • Creatinine
  • Bicarbonate

The maintenance of sodium and potassium in our body is tightly regulated. Certain hormonal states and/or medication e.g. anti-hypertensives may cause derangements which will need to be worked out. Potassium levels may also be elevated consequent to consumption of potassium rich foods, potassium supplementation, and/or handling of the blood test specimen.

Urea and creatinine may be deranged as a result of renal impairment and dehydration. Your doctor may request for a repeat following adequate hydration.

Bone Joint Disease2020-07-07T12:32:28+08:00

The bone and joint panel comprises the following:

  • Calcium
  • Phosphate
  • Rheumatoid Factor


Calcium & Phosphate are important bone minerals. Increased levels may indicate hormonal disorders resulting in increased calcium metabolism. This may affect bone strength and present risk of osteoporosis.

Rheumatoid factor is associated with the presence of rheumatoid arthritis. A result that is positive has to be correlated clinically with symptoms of joint pains.

Gout Screen2020-07-07T10:32:05+08:00

This is a test for uric acid. High levels may cause crystallization and tissue deposits in joints.

High uric acid can be observed in gout, a condition characterised by pain, swelling, redness and warmth of the affected joints. Uric acid may be caused by excessive intake of red meats, alcohol, bean and bean products and durians. If the uric acid is found to be high, abstinence from these food groups will be helpful.

Hepatitis A2020-08-05T12:23:32+08:00

Hepatitis A is an infectious disease which can cause acute liver swelling and yellowing of skin. It is transmitted by contaminated food or water as well as consumption of contaminated shellfish such as cockles, mussels and oysters.

The test determines whether you have immunity against the Hepatitis A virus and is recommended if you

  • are a known Hepatitis B carrier
  • are a frequent overseas traveller
  • frequently consume shellfish.
Hepatitis A HAV IgG
Reactive You are immune. No vaccination against Hep A is required.
Non Reactive Primary course of 2 vaccinations at 0 and 6-12 months is recommended.
Hepatitis B2020-07-30T11:09:52+08:00

The Hepatitis B screen comprises

  1. Hepatitis B surface antigen (HbsAg)
  2. Hepatitis B antibody (anti-HBsAb).
Reactive Non Reactive
Hepatitis B surface antigen (HbsAg) You have the Hepatitis B virus, please see your doctor for regular follow-up and screening You do not have the virus, please refer to Surface Antibody result for management
Hepatitis B antibody (anti-HBsAb) Results >10 — You are immune. No vaccination required Results <10 – Vaccination required. (for persons who have never developed immunity from primary Hepatitis vaccination)

 

Hepatitis B vaccination is now part of the national childhood vaccination programme. Hepatitis B remains infectious through transmission of blood and bodily fluids such as intravenous infusion, inadequate sterilisation and sexual intercourse. It is important to be vaccinated against Hepatitis B.

Test results are valid for up to 3 months following the test. Should you require vaccination, please make an appointment here, or visit a family doctor near you.

How do I choose my health screening tests?2020-07-06T13:43:29+08:00

Recommended health screening guidelines are available here. You are encouraged to refer to this list when making your selection.

Pre-screening consultation with our doctors is available here. This is extended on a complimentary basis, even if you do not decide to go for health screening thereafter.

At the time of health screening, you may further discuss your selection with our team. It is important that you select your health screening tests with appropriate guidelines, information and advice available.

Hepatitis C2020-07-07T10:58:40+08:00

Hepatitis C viral infection is the most common cause for non-A, non-B cases of viral hepatitis in the community, and there is no vaccine available at this time. It is a blood-borne virus, easily transmitted when intravenous drug users share needles, through body tattoos or piercing. Transmission through sexual intercourse and from mother to baby are relatively rare, as is transmission through blood transfusion as donated blood is screened for Hepatitis C.

Although mostly asymptomatic, individuals may experience weight loss, tiredness, nausea and vomiting, fever or abdominal pain and jaundice. Persons infected with Hepatitis C are at high risk of developing chronic Hepatitis C infection (about 75%), and although usually asymptomatic, it may progress to cirrhosis in 20-30% of patients, and liver cancer. Persons who have symptoms described above, or who fall within the high risk group should take this test.

Where should I go for the swab test, with the referral letter from my General Practitioner (GP)?2020-08-05T12:15:05+08:00

GPs have been advised to refer patients to the nearest operating facility, so as to minimise travel and exposure to other members of the public, as well as avoid delays to being tested. Facilities which provide swabbing for referred cases include selected SASH Public Health Preparedness Clinics (PHPCs), polyclinics, SGH Fever Screening Area, and NCID Screening Centre. You can refer to this link for the nearest facility to you, or book an appointment with Minmed for COVID-19 testing.

The list of SASH PHPCs that provide swabbing for referred cases are published on this website. Please take note of the operating hours of the clinic you wish to visit. We advise you to make a prior appointment to ensure a smooth experience.

Thyroid Disorder2020-07-07T11:00:51+08:00

Thyroid Tests:

  • Free Thyroxine (Free T4)
  • TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)


The thyroid gland controls our basal metabolic rate (rate at which body uses energy during rest to maintain vital functions such as breathing and keeping warm)

Thyroid hormones determine the body’s metabolism, an increased in levels may result in:

  • loss of weight
  • increased appetite
  • heat intolerance
  • volatile temper


Low levels may cause the opposite to occur.

We recommend this test if you suffer from any of the above symptoms. TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) may be performed in cases where the FT4 is too low or too high.

Should derangement be noted, please see your doctor for a formal assessment. Repeat test may be conducted to ascertain the trend, whilst additional tests may also be conducted to elucidate the cause of the derangement.

Can I visit Minmed Clinic to request for SWAB test / COVID-19 test?2020-07-30T10:57:39+08:00

Our doctors will review your condition first, and if you are assessed to have symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 infection, we will perform the swab test for you at the clinic.

Requests for and requests for referrals for COVID-19 testing for those who are asymptomatic are not allowed (e.g employer’s request, travel clearance needs, worried well).

Cancer Markers2020-07-20T09:45:54+08:00

Cancer markers are proteins that may be produced by cells that show increased turnover. Cancer markers have variable test sensitivities and specificities and should be taken and interpreted within the context of the patients’ medical history.

Tumour Markers Description
Colon & Lungs (Carcinoembryonic Antigen – CEA) CEA may be elevated in selected cases of cancers of the large intestine & lung Smokers may also have mild elevations.
Liver (Alpha fetoprotein – AFP) Liver cancer marker test (AFP), together with Liver Function Test, is recommended for people with known Hepatitis B infection.
Pancreas (CA 19.9) Serum CA19-9 levels may be elevated in up to:

a) 80% of patients with pancreatic cancer
b) 54-89% of patients with stomach cancer
c) 64% of patients with colorectal cancer

This test is also used to monitor patients who have recovered from pancreatic cancer.

Nose (EBV) EBV is linked to the development of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), risk of which may be increased if you:

  • have a family history of NPC
  • are a smoker
  • consume high quantities of salted vegetables, meat & fish high in nitrosamines
Prostate (PSA) – for males only In Singapore, adenocarcinoma of the prostate is the 6th most common cancer among men. Screening with PSA has the potential of early detection and treatment of organ-confined disease.
Testicular (Beta HCG) – for males only Elevated Beta HCG levels may indicate testicular cancer in men.
Marker Ovarian (CA125) – for females only CA125 is a protein that may be elevated in cases of ovarian cancer.
Breast (CA15.3) – for females only The CA15.3 test is used to monitor metastatic breast cancer and early recurrence of breast cancer.
I have paid for my consultation at the first GP during which I was given a referral to be swabbed elsewhere. Do I need to pay for the consultation and swab test if I visit Minmed Clinic for the swabbing?2020-07-30T10:58:46+08:00

You are advised to present yourself at any SASH PHPC (including Minmed Clinics) within 24 hours of your first visit at the first GP clinic. You will be allowed up to 48 hours from your visit at the first GP clinic to do so. If you present yourself within 48 hours of your referring visit with a completed referral form, you do not need to pay for the consultation and swab at the receiving SASH PHPC.

However, if you are i) present at the SASH PHPC (including Minmed Clinic) past 48 hours from your visit at the first GP clinic, or ii) do not bring along a completed referral form provided by the first GP, you will need to be reviewed again. In this case, you will be charged as per a regular Flu Subsidy Scheme (FSS)/Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS) Acute visit, or if not eligible for FSS or CHAS, the respective consultation fee charged by Minmed.

If you wish to be seen and treated for other non-Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI) conditions with us, you will be charged for consultation and medication separately.

Full Blood Count2020-07-07T11:07:57+08:00

Full Blood Count consists of the following tests & screens for diseases such as anemia (low haemoglobin), clotting disorders, leukemia and infections.

  • Haemoglobin
  • RBC (RCC)
  • WCC (TWDC)
  • 5 Part Differential Count
  • Platelet Count
  • PCV – MCH/MCV
  • MCHC
  • Blood Film Comment


Haemoglobin is the red pigment within the blood cell and is responsible for carrying oxygen supply to the tissues. Haemoglobin may be low when there is chronic blood loss e.g. from piles, gastric ulcers, intestinal growths, or from thalassemia, a hereditary condition characterised by red blood cells of shorter lifespan. Low haemoglobin levels should be followed up with your doctor so as to elucidate the cause as they can cause lethargy and giddiness.

Elevated haemoglobin levels may be observed in chronic smokers.

WCC (TWDC) represents the white cell count of our body. This may be elevated in states of infection or blood disorders e.g. leukemia. Marginally low levels may be noted following a clinical infection. The arrangements of the white blood cell ought to be followed up by your family doctor.

Platelets play a vital role in causing bleeding to stop. Peripheral blood film studies reflect the state of the red blood cells when viewed under the microscope.

What documents should I bring to Minmed Clinic( or any SASH PHPC) where I go for the swab test?2020-07-30T11:00:33+08:00

Please bring along the referral form completed by the first (referring) GP and your NRIC.

Helicobacter pylori Antibody Test2020-07-07T11:10:58+08:00

Helicobacter Pylori is known to be a possible cause of gastric ulcers. This test is used to indicate the presence of a past or current infection.

A positive Helicobacter antibody test ought to be correlated clinically if there is active symptoms of gastritis. If there is gastric pain, triple therapy may be prescribed by your doctor to eradicate possible Helicobacter infection.

Will I definitely get a swab if I present at Minmed Clinic (SASH PHPC) with a referral letter from the first (referring) GP?2020-07-30T11:01:03+08:00

The referring GP and our Minmed Doctors are responsible for ensuring that patients are suitable for SASH. Therefore, we will make a further assessment to ascertain whether you remain suitable for SASH at the point of your visit before performing the swab. You are not required to make any payment with us whether or not a swab is performed.

Cardiac Profile2020-07-09T10:07:59+08:00

The cardiac profile test comprises of special lipoproteins, Apolipoprotein A1, Apolipoprotein B, Apolipoprotein A1/B ratio and C-reactive protein. Together with the cholesterol levels, it allows for better understanding of the cardiac risk profile.

Apolipoprotein A1 and B
Apolipoprotein A1 is the major protein component of HDL (high density lipoprotein) in blood. It helps to move fat and cholesterol from tissues to the liver for excretion. A low level of Apolipoprotein A1 indicates inadequate HDL, whilst a high level is not of concern.

Apolipoprotein B, especially when associated with elevated LDL levels, increase the risk of plague formation and artherosclerosis. A high level of Apolipoprotein B is not desirable, whilst a low level is acceptable.

Markers Ref range (g/L)
Apolipoprotein A1 0.94-1.78
Apolipoprotein B 0.62-1.33
Apolipoprotein B/A1 ratio 0.22-0.80

Hence a high Apolipoprotein B/A1 ratio implies inadequate HDL or excessive LDL.

C-reactive protein
A hs-CRP (high sensitivity C-reactive protein) test may be used to help identify risk of cardiovascular disease. It’s interpretation should be made in combination with other risk factors such as elevated LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, cigarette smoking, hypertension and diabetes

Elevated levels of hs-CRP in healthy persons may suggest an increased risk of heart attack, stroke and peripheral arterial disease.

wr-CRP CVD Risk
<1.0 mg/L Low risk for CVD
<1.0-3.0 mg/L Average risk for CVD
<3.0 mg/L Increased risk for CVD
>5.0 mg/L Suggestive of infection/other sources of inflammation

Homocysteine
Homocysteine is a type of amino acid used in the body to make proteins. Normally, vitamin B12, vitamin B6 and folic acid convert homocysteine into other substances needed in the body. High levels of homocysteine may be associated with accelerated artherosclerosis, heart disease and stroke. Reduction in intake of food rich in cholesterol, simple sugars, oil and fat, as well as in increase in physical exercise will help to correct the above factors and reduce the risk of artherosclerosis, ischemic heart disease and stroke.

Which GP/ Clinic will inform me of the swab results?2020-07-30T11:01:48+08:00

The first GP of the referring clinic will inform you of the swab results.

Vitamin D2020-07-07T11:12:37+08:00

Vitamin D promotes the absorption and metabolism of calcium and phosphorus. Deficiency can lead to bone weakness in adults. 25-hydroxyvitamin D test is usually ordered to identify a possible deficiency in Vitamin D.

Vitamin D is synthesised by the skin upon exposure to natural sunlight. Deficiencies in Vitamin D typically reflect an inadequate active lifestyle with consequent reduced exposure to sunlight.

Will Minmed Clinic provide and charge me for other treatments during my visit for the swabbing?2020-07-30T11:02:28+08:00

As the first GP should already have provided you with all the necessary medication and MC, you should not require further treatment from us.

Syphilis Screen (VDRL)2020-07-07T11:14:31+08:00
  • Syphilis Antibody
  • RPR if Syphilis Antibody is positive
  • TPHA if Syphilis Antibody is positive


This test screens for sexually transmitted infection (syphilis). If untreated, it can cause chronic condition such as

  • Brain & spinal cord damage
  • Blindness
  • Insanity
  • Miscarriage
  • Birth defects in pregnant woman
  • Occasionally fatal


Syphilis is an uncommon disease in this current day and age. If VDRL is positive, a secondary confirmatory test will be conducted.

What is Onsite Health Screening? What does it cover?2020-07-28T14:24:35+08:00

Onsite Health Screening is a yearly exercise where Minmed mobile teams will visit your office to provide health screening services to your staff. Customized test packages typically include height, weight, BMI, blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes screening. Optional packages are available for take up.

Offices will receive their health reports online within the next working day. A corporate profile will be raised based on the identified results and submitted to the HR/committee with workplace health programme recommendations.

Onsite Health Screening is a great way of enhancing employee welfare and benefits.

Are there grants and subsidies for Onsite Health Screening?2020-07-28T14:29:11+08:00

Grants are available from the Health Promotion Board for the take up of onsite health screening. Complimentary health screening is also available as part of our corporate wellness solution. Email [email protected] and our friendly certified consultants will be happy to share with you available programmes after reviewing your corporate health needs.

My employer has requested me to go for testing before returning to work. Can I be tested?2020-07-30T11:07:58+08:00

Requests for and requests for referrals for COVID-19 testing for those who are asymptomatic are not allowed (e.g employer’s request, travel clearance needs, worried well).

However, if you are suffering from symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 infection, our doctors will review your condition first, and perform the swab test for you at the clinic if indicated.

Urine FEME (Full and Microscopic Examination of Urine)2020-07-09T09:09:35+08:00

This test assesses the urine sample biochemically and under the microscope. Detection of abnormalities e.g: presence of protein, glucose, ketones, red and white blood cells, epithelial cells, crystals, casts, yeast or bacteria in the urine, or abnormal pH or specific gravity, may suggest underlying urinary tract infection, diabetes, kidney stones or kidney disease.

This test is useful as a baseline in healthy individuals, and particularly important in persons with diseases like hypertension, diabetes and kidney disease.

It is advisable to consult a doctor for advice, repeat the test and follow up accordingly.

Ladies should avoid doing this test within 1 week of menstruation.

What does the office need to do or provide?2020-07-28T14:30:14+08:00

Having done onsite health screening for almost 2 decades, we have established protocols and processes in place to ensure that your health screening exercise is convenient and fast.

We will need provisioning of a space typically between 200 to 500 sqft (typical office conference room) depending on the number of people to be screened. We will need in addition, convenient power points for our equipment.
