You would be wise, to locate a doctor, outside of the City limits, in the HDB area clinics, most doctors will know how to deal with it, or refer you to specialist help....It will cost you an arm and a leg, to go to the private clinics, so be careful, explain, to your doctor you want the cheapest and best...not the most expensive and best.

I'm living in HDB and signed up with a local doctor, although i have also been sent to expensive private hospitals too, because the doctor thought it was best for me to see a heart specialist, because of a pulse of 40, so doctors, well you know the saying....everyones an expert! Well they are not, they are no different, than the good & bad mechanics, you come across.

Are you type 1 or 2 ...you know there has been research on vinegars for reducing blood sugar? If you are type 2, there is a good chance it can help control your blood sugar, although you need to see, just how sensitive you are, my brother -in-law drinks it and he is type 2.

Although you can get a health vinegar, with no sweetness in at all too, the drinkingvinegars have fructos, but no additives...and vinegars break down the carbs and release the sugar slowly, if you drink the vinegar with your food.

Like i say you need to monitor the results..because everyone is different.... My blood sugar was dangerously high on my blood test, after fasting 24 hrs...so i drank the vinegar and was able to lower the sugar levels each month, over 5 months I'm now out of the danger zone.

Singapore have unusally high rates of diabetes!
