I'm a type 1 diabetic currently in the UK and I have been offered a job in Singapore. However, I can't seem to find any information on the cost of insulin in Singapore, if anyone knows roughly what a 5x3ml cartridge box or a 10ml Vial of Levemir, Humalog or Novorapid would cost then please let me know!
I've found prices for needles and test strips and they seem comparable to the UK, when I've bought off prescription in emergencies.
Obviously living in the UK all my Diabetes supplies are free of charge so I need to know roughly what I will need to budget for supplies in Singapore, if the cost is too high then unfortunately the move may not be worth it.
Thanks in advance.

have u taken this?
i just started shopping around for the cheapest deal for glucerna, and this online is slightly cheaper.
not too sure about needles and stripes though, have not bought those before.
Singapore is kinda expensive for health care products
costs abt 20% more in ntuc supermarket, and more in cold storage.

oh yah! if someone can answer this, i would be grateful!
Yes, but if a pharmacy says no, go to another one ...
Quite often they just don't bother with prescriptions.
