L Mngmt as a Way of Chronic Illness


Working at C & K Family Clinic since 2000, Dr. Chua Tee Lian is a longtime Singapore family practice physician who has served patients at the Frankel Clinic and the Liang Clinic. Responsible for treating a wide range of conditions, Dr. Chua Tee Lian also provides lifestyle management consulting focused on acute and chronic illnesses.

When it comes to preventing and managing chronic conditions, a major obstacle is the perceived enormity of making changes in jam-packed schedules. Significant lifestyle modifications are simple to integrate within existing routines, as long as they are precisely calibrated and consistently followed.

Physical activity is one major element of this, with moderate-intensity activity totaling 150 minutes each week (75 minutes of vigorous-intensity activity) recommended. At the moderate level, this only requires a 20-minute brisk walk or jog each day. You can also incorporate exercise within the working day. This might involve taking the stairs instead of the escalator from a subway station or using the stairs instead of an elevator at the office.

Diet is another aspect of preventative health within the individual’s control. Common sense dictates that one should switch out processed foods, sugars, and empty calories for fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes. Another worthwhile aim is stopping eating when one is full and growing attuned to what the body is telling you. Beyond this, curtailing smoking and alcohol consumption can have strong positive effects on cardiovascular health.
