FAQs

When should I see a cardiologist?

Your GP or cardiologist would most likely have explained to you the key risk factors for heart disease, which include:

  • Body Mass Index (BMI): High BMIs are linked to increased risk of heart disease.
  • High blood pressure: A reading of 140/90 is considered high, and increases your risks of heart disease.
  • High blood sugar: As many Singaporeans have diabetes - it's one of the most important risk factors for heart disease.
  • High cholesterol: Your low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or bad cholesterol) level should be lower than 100.
  • Waist circumference: The “normal” measurements are less than 90 cm for women and less than 80 cm for men.
  • If you test on the high side for any of these numbers, you may benefit from seeing a cardiologist.
