Hailing all the way from Tokyo, Dr. Shinsuke Muto, MD, Ph.D, EMBA, brings two decades of experience in the medical field to Singapore with Tetsuyu, a new medical care system based on the Japanese homecare model and adapted to the needs of the Singaporean family and lifestyle.
TIPS ON LIVING HEALTH
Exercise, especially resistance or weight training. So many common chronic diseases and problems can be prevented and improved with resistance or weight training. Such exercises increase metabolism, improve insulin sensitivity and heart function, as well as increase bone density and muscle mass.
Eat well, focusing on nutrient-rich foods such as fruits and vegetables. Take lean protein to preserve muscle mass. Reduce intake of refined sugars as too much increases inflammation in the body, which is a key driver of heart disease, diabetes and other chronic diseases.
Spend time with family and friends. They are an important aspect of our social life and emotional wellbeing. Also take up a hobby or a leisure activity that you have interest in. Your identity isn’t tied to your career and you can still find fulfillment at different stages in life.
Set aside some quiet time for yourself. It is important to be in touch with one’s inner self besides being with people who support you
TETSUYU HOME CARE:
Taps onto technology to not just allow the whole team to keep informed on each patient’s conditions, but also to enable realtime communication via a chat function to accommodate the oft urgent nature of healthrelated queries.
Prevents issues such as poly-pharmacy, which refers to the effects of taking multiple medications concurrently for co-existing health problems. Polypharmacy becomes problematic when multiple healthcare providers working independently prescribe patients too many medications. There’s even the danger of drug interactions!
