Many people are not aware of their state of health. An individual might look healthy but he/she may have undetected health problems or be a silent carrier of infectious or hereditary diseases. A routine blood test can reveal such conditions so that necessary precautions or treatments can be initiated.

  • To assess your general health status.

  • To detect infectious diseases such as HIV, Hepatitis B, and common STDs.

  • To screen for hereditary conditions that may affect future offspring, such as Thalassaemia.

  • For females, screening includes Rubella IgG antibodies and thyroid blood test.

  • Thalassemia is a genetic blood disorder.

  • A person with thalassemia cannot produce normal, functioning hemoglobin, which carries oxygen from the lungs to the body. This results in anemia.

  • Thalassemia is inherited and can affect both males and females. In Singapore, about 3% of the population are carriers of the thalassemia gene.

  • There are two types of thalassemia:

    • Thalassemia minor

    • Thalassemia major

  • You and your partner should consider thalassemia screening if you are planning to get married or start a family.

  • Rubella is a highly contagious virus that can increase the risk of congenital abnormalities in the developing baby (fetus), miscarriage, and stillbirth. Screening for immunity to rubella allows a woman to protect herself against this virus before she gets pregnant.

  • If rubella antibodies are undetectable, the vaccine should be given prior to pregnancy to provide immunisation and protection to the fetus.
