I have been experiencing discomfort on my legs, and the back of my neck after eating seafoood and red meat, and I guess the trend has got me a bit worried, and so I decided to do a medical check-up at the newly opened Borneo Medical Centre (BMC) at Simpang Tiga, Kuching.
Briefly, the medical check-up up cost me RM415 (including GST), and it was completed in about an hour which was faster than I expected.
After the whole check-up, I went to hang out with Kim at Noodles Descendants for a bowl of delicious pork soup before I got a call from BMC asking me to come back at 1130PM for my full medical report.
When I arrived, the summary of my check-up was explained to me in detail, and it was revealed that I currently need to eat right, and exercise more because my cholesterol level is above average, and my uric acid, the main reason for my joint discomfort, is also slightly elevated.
To lower these figures, I was asked to lessen my meat intake which includes pork, which I do take on a very regular basis.
But the real challenge is to lower my weight and exercise more because there’s really no motivation for me to do so…. (probably until now)
And if you were wondering, BMC was excellent in their service with everyone, from the nurse to the doctor, to the cashier. Everyone was being very nice and polite, worth the cash spent.
