I studied medicine at the National University of Singapore and pursued further specialist training at the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and the University of Aberdeen in Scotland. I subsequently received my fellowship by the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh (UK).
I am dually accredited in both Endocrinology and Internal Medicine, enabling me to provide a high quality of personalised and holistic specialist care.
I have been awarded research grants from the National Medical Research Council, Endocrine Metabolic Society of Singapore and Alexandra Health, and have shared my findings and clinical experience on exercise, diabetes prevention, thyroid diseases and sodium disorders through publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals and books.
I was formerly a Senior Consultant and the first Head of Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH) Department of Medicine Unit 2 and Division of Endocrinology. There, I oversaw the hospital’s endocrine subspecialty development and spearheaded hospital-wide initiatives such as the thyroid service, multidisciplinary thyroid cancer protocol, inpatient diabetes protocols and diabetes exercise programme.

The doctor asked my son to have an MRI and MRA. The doctor said the result was good and he didn’t give us any medicines. This was May 27.
Until today, my son still complains about headaches when he strains while defecating or when he laughs out loud. I have been measuring his blood pressure from May 28 until today. The result was in the range of 130/78 to 141 /81. I decided to give him half of Irbesartan (150 mg). Since he took Irbesartan on May 29, his highest tension was 137. I also give him cucumber juice 3 times a day. His blood pressure is now under 140 but I am still not sure if this is hypertension or another problem. Should I do a blood or kidney test? Thank you, Doc.
