Frequently Asked Questions

Non-Fasting

The Non-fasting Health Screening approach ensures that you can prioritize your health without sacrificing your comfort.

You can skip the need to plan around meal schedules or feel hungry and fatigued during the screening, and still get accurate results.

It also reduces the risk of hypoglycemia in patients with diabetes.

Yes they are, local studies have shown no significant differences between fasted and non-fasted blood samples for cholesterol levels. HbA1C for glucose monitoring is also a well-established test.

While it is not necessary to fast, we will advise avoiding alcohol or a heavy meal just before your blood test.

If you are going for a Treadmill Stress Test, certain blood pressure medications such as beta-blockers may need to be stopped prior to the test. You should not smoke or drink caffeinated drinks at least 3 hours before the test.

HbA1C is used to screen for diabetes. HbA1C tells us the blood glucose control over the last 3 months by measuring sugar molecules attached to your red blood cells. Concurrently, a non-fasted random blood glucose level is run. The normal cut-off for random blood glucose will be different from fasted blood glucose. 

If your random blood glucose or HbA1C is abnormal, you may be required to do fasting blood glucose to confirm the diagnosis of diabetes or prediabetes.

There should be no significant difference in your cholesterol levels between the fasted and non-fasted blood samples. The cholesterol levels would be interpreted as normal.

Abdominal Ultrasound requires at least 6 hours of fasting before the procedure.

If you are planning to go for an abdominal ultrasound, please ensure that you have fasted for the recommended time period before your scheduled appointment.

If your HbA1C is borderline or your random glucose is high, your doctor may advise you to do a fasting glucose to confirm the diagnosis of diabetes or prediabetes.

If your triglyceride level is extremely elevated, your doctor may advise you to do a fasted lipid panel.

Special Conditions

When pregnant, you will typically be seeing your obstetrician regularly for follow-up and antenatal care. Screening tests necessary (e.g. screening for gestational diabetes) will typically be conducted at your O&G clinic.

It is thus recommended that you do not undergo health screening with us when pregnant. If you do wish to, you are encouraged to only evaluate your lipid profile and fasting glucose.

Certain vaccinations may not be administered when you are pregnant. Please check with our doctors for suitability via teleconsult here.

If you are breastfeeding, it is acceptable to undergo health screening. However, this should not take place in lieu of or before your post natal follow up with your obstetrician.

It is acceptable to go for health screening when you are having your menses. However, kindly refrain from submitting your urine specimen when you are having your menses. It is advisable to wait till day 5 from the last day of your menstrual cycle for better accuracy.

Pap smear studies should not be conducted until after day 8 of menses.

CA 125 (Ovarian Tumor Marker) may be falsely elevated during menses, immediately before and immediately after menses. Aim to do the CA 125 (Ovarian Tumor Marker) test 1 week before or after your menses.

If you are feeling unwell, please postpone your health screening as it is an elective procedure.

You may email [email protected] to reschedule an appointment, whether it is at your office or at Minmed Health Screeners.

Specific Tests

Urine tests available may include urine dipstick, urine full examination and microscopic examination (UFEME) and urine microalbumin to creatinine ratio.

These tests involve the collection of a clean specimen of urine midstream. During the collection process, please collect the specimen in the bottle midway through the stream. Kindly avoid collecting the first drops of urine as they appear as this may cause the specimen to be contaminated by skin cells and affecting your results.

Kindly refrain from submitting your urine specimen when you are having your menses. It is advisable to wait till day 5 from the last day of your menstrual cycle for better accuracy.

The stool test tests for the presence of microscopic blood cells which may not be visible to the human eye.

When collecting the specimen, please use the spatula available in the lid of the container. A small specimen of stool is adequate for analysis.

Please note that specimens should be submitted to the clinic on the same day before 3pm (for weekdays) and 11am (for weekends).If your selected stool test is the conventional faecal blood test (non immunological), you are advised to abstain from consumption of meats 3 days before the study.

The Resting Electrocardiogram (ECG) test is conducted by our technicians to assess the electrical rhythm of your heart.

This test involves the placement of sticker electrodes on your chest as well as your limbs as you lie on the couch. This test typically takes 15 minutes.

Please wear a two-piece outfit to facilitate placement of the chest electrodes.

For your comfort, ECGs are conducted only by our female technicians.

The Treadmill Stress test or Cardiac Stress test involves the monitoring of the electrical rhythm of your heart as you exercise on a treadmill.

Whilst the test takes 30 to 45 minutes including preparation, the actual running time is typically less than 12 minutes.

The test is undertaken by a trained technician with a doctor within the same test premise. It is advisable that you have a light meal and abstain from caffeine prior to the test. Please wear comfortable walking/running shoes as well as a two-piece outfit. The latter is to facilitate placement of test electrodes on your chest.

Please bring a list of your current medication on the day of the study.

Ultrasound studies are a non-invasive way of evaluating soft tissues and organs as part of the health screening process.

If you are having an ultrasound examination of your abdomen, please fast for at least 6 hours. You are encouraged to drink at least 4 cups of water and avoid going to the toilet prior to ultrasound of the pelvis and/or prostate.

Please come in loose comfortable attire. The sonographer will apply a clear viscous gel to the area of examination.

An average study may take up to 30 minutes.As ultrasounds do not involve xrays, it is safe for pregnant and/or breastfeeding moms.

The Mammogram study is an evaluation of the breasts using xrays, and is recommended for ladies above 40 years of age.

Please wear a two-piece outfit and avoid the use of deodorant, lotion, perfume and talc on the day of the study. An optimum window for the test is within 2 weeks after menstruation.

The test will be conducted by our female radiographer. During the process, there will be light firm compression of your breasts which can be uncomfortable. This is unfortunately necessary for proper evaluation.

The mammogram is expected to take under 20 minutes.

Xrays involve the study of a limited body area for evaluation. Minmed uses a digital radiography solution which keeps the amount of radiation and the incidence of retakes as low as possible.

No preparation is necessary. Ladies who are pregnant or possibly pregnant are advised NOT to take X-ray tests, and must inform us before taking such tests.
