Diabetes Medications & Treatment Options
Diabetes (Diabetes mellitus) is a metabolic disease that causes high blood sugar. With diabetes, your body is unable to make or effectively use insulin, thereby impairing your body’s ability to effectively store blood sugar. Diabetes comes in two main types – type 1 and type 2. Both are indicative of high blood sugar but differ in how this happens.
Type 1 diabetes occurs when the immune system attacks the cells in your pancreas, where insulin is made. As such, treatment for type 1 diabetes involves daily insulin jabs, as the body is unable to produce insulin.
Type 2 diabetes occurs when your body becomes resistant to insulin, and sugar builds up in your blood. Symptoms for type 2 diabetes can typically be managed through regular diet and exercise. If lifestyle changes aren’t enough to lower your blood sugar, you can consider taking medication to help with your symptoms. Typically, these medications will be prescribed to you by the doctor.
In the case where both diet changes and tablets are unable to bring our blood sugar levels down, insulin injections may be required.
Diabetes is a progressive chronic condition — this means that it tends to get worse over time. Hence, those with diabetes tend to require lifelong medication. It is also helpful to note that diabetes care goes beyond lifestyle changes and medication, but also includes other procedures such as regular foot care and wound management.
How to get Diabetes Medications
To get the right medication for diabetes, you will need to get a prescription from your local general practitioner or clinic. With a prescription on hand, you can then get your medication from your local pharmacies, polyclinics or public hospitals in Singapore. You can also have medicine delivered to your doorstep with Homage.
It is advisable to have a follow-up consultation with the doctor once every 3-6 months to monitor your condition.
Those with diabetes often require medication or insulin jabs at least once a day. As such, you may need to get a refill of your medication once every few months.

Have been using this for a year to help my grandfather who frequently gets aspiration pneumonia and has difficulty leaving the house. The app is so easy to use, and the cherry on top is the wonderful service behind the app. Had some difficulty finding a doctor recently and Hakim called me back personally twice to ensure a doctor was found. Thank you so much, cannot recommend this app more.
Very responsive app, with options to chat with caregiver, review reports and contact support team for assistance.
My mum’s helper was hospitalised suddenly and I needed urgent help to take care of my mum who has advanced dementia. Homage was able able to find caregivers for my mum within a very short notice.

Had a good experience with Homage's teleconsultation. The doctor is qualified, friendly and guided me on examination. She also explained my symptoms to me in detail, which is useful. The report provided has detailed information, and medicine was delivered to me on the same day even though my appointment was in the evening.
