New Frontiers in 2020

It’s been a while since I last posted as life has been rather same-o. In a way, it is good because eating ketogenic helps my health tremendously and there has been little issues. On a side note, I was diagnosed with oxalate stones in my kidney and hence have cut back heavily on almonds, black…

Gestational Diabetes is on the rise in Singapore

There has been an increase of women contracting GDM in Singapore these days. Why? Article 2 says that many women tend to eat more and exercise less or not at all. Part of the ‘solution’ is to exercise and be more active. Personally, my take is that more attention needs to be given to the…
