Singapore Health SH 44 - Mar/Apr 2017

The latest issue of Singapore Health is out.  Our cover story is on a breakthrough discovery  by  SingHealth and the Genome Institute of Singapore  which offers hope to halt the dangerous muscle wasting disease that afflicts terminally ill cancer patients.  Also in this issue,  read about co-testing, which combines the conventional Pap smear and an HPV DNA test to better detect cervical cancer and SGH’s Postnatal Assessment Service for women most at risk of developing urinary incontinence.

Other stories to check out include the quick and painless  injection that can replace eye drops for glaucoma; how blue light therapy is used to reset  the biological clocks;   how physiotherapy can ease lymphoedema;  what happens when heart valves give way; and how you can   register for hospital admission and check estimated costs online with  the new “Admissions Buddy”.
