Pediatric Endocronolgist?

Post by brockp00 » Wed, 17 Feb 2010 6:17 am

Hi,

I am considering a relocation to Singapore with my wife and 2 daughters, age 4 and 2. My 4 year old was diagnosed in July with juvenile diabetes. My biggest fear is that there will not be solid medical specialist care for her there, as well as issues with school care.

Has anyone had experience with this?

Thanks.

hi There

The medical here is wonderful with two fantastic paediatric speciality hospitals namely KK and NUH.

Here is the link for NUH which is our preferred hospital and we like Prof Lee

Where are you moving from and what schools are you considering. We have found the International Schools to have magnificent nuring facilities

Cheers

We live in the USA. We go to one of the best specialists in the world and dont pay anything for health care as my employer is great. We would be working for a subsidiary of my employer there, but my understanding is the healthcare coverage is much different, and not as comprehensive as I currently have. Her medications, test strips, syringes, etc, run around $1,000 USD per month here, of which I pay $0. Plus, I am nervous going to a place that may not have such a high incidence of juvenile diabetes, as Seattle does.
