With the World Cup matches going on till the wee hours of the morning, Dr Wee reminded that ample amount of sleep and rest is important for the body to recharge and function properly. To avoid being sick, he advised against having oily food for supper. When asked about the ideal relationship between GP and patient, Dr Wee said it would be beneficial for patients to stay in a long-term relationship with the same primary doctor so that a more accurate medical diagnosis can be achieved. Dr Wee also addressed few misconceptions that members of public may have on the role of a general practitioner. Dr Wee explained that GPs do not only deal with common cough and colds. They can also monitor the progress of patients with chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol through their health status as well as advise on how to better control their current conditions from their regular check-ups.
Apart from acute illnesses and chronic diseases, Dr Wee advice the public to visit GPs for various health screenings and vaccinations.
