Is Over-the-Counter Diabetes Medicine Available in Singapore?

Managing chronic health conditions doesn't have to be so hard!

Can I Buy Diabetes Medications Over the Counter?

You cannot buy diabetes medicines at a pharmacy without a prescription in Singapore. But don't worry! You can book a free online consultation with our family doctors. We will review your cholesterol levels and help arrange the dispensing of your medication at transparent prices.

Diabetes & Energy

Diabetes is like having a car that can’t use petrol properly. In our bodies, food is the petrol, and insulin is the key allowing petrol to be used for energy. In diabetes, the body either can’t make insulin (Type 1) or can’t use it properly (Type 2), causing high blood sugar levels. Over time, high blood sugar can lead to serious complications like heart disease and vision loss. Managing blood sugar levels is crucial for people with diabetes.

How can I control diabetes?

Managing a chronic condition might seem overwhelming, but with the right tools and advice, it can be much easier. Here’s how you can monitor your condition:

  • 1. Regular Check-ups: Schedule free regular appointments with our Family Doctors for assessments and adjustments to your treatment.
  • 2. Use our Health App: Our Eden Mobile App helps you to track symptoms, medication timings, and consider other important factors.
  • 3. Journalling: Keep a daily diary of symptoms, food intake, and medication to identify triggers or patterns. You may invest in a blood pressure machine and a glucose meter. Our team of Family Doctors will be happy to advise further ($0).
