    Default Pre-Employment Medical Checkup

    May I know the range of values and tests that pre-employment medical checkup entails?

    EG:
    1. Blood sugar: Range from xx to yy (units??)
    2. Chloresterol: Range from xx to yy (units??)
    3. Blood pressure: Range from xx to yy (units??)

    Other tests like urine, chest X ray I believe are standard.

    Any more tests?

    Thanks a lot...

    Quoted from this website:
    http://www.science.edu.sg/ssc/detail...arent=4&cat=47

    The normal range for blood sugar is between 4 and 7 mmol/l (millimoles per litre).

    Maybe you wanna google?

    Yeap, G6PD = Glucose 6 Phospate Deficiency. Basically the body is lacking in this ezyme and hence there are some food that they are not able to take. Eg like aspirin, broad bean(?), a couple of chinese herbs among many others. I've heard some tell-tale signs when the child is born is that it'll look slightly yellowish but I'm not too sure on this one. A blood test would be able to confirmed it though. If detected to have such symptom, the doctor will give the parent a list of the items that cannot be eaten.

    it also depends on the doctor who will be reviewing your results, taking in account, the various test results, viewed together.

    There MUST be some standards, right? Otherwise one lab says this value pass, another says, no, this fail...
