I need the certification to get more time in exams, which I have trouble scoring distinctions for. Any foreign diagnosis have to be endorsed by a local doctor, which means being input into a local medical database.

Forced disclosure. The employer has the right to force consent of medical background in order to reduce their in-house medical provision costs by taking medical records from the central medical database, as part of company policy. It is just like how employers can refuse to hire you if you refuse to turn over the login to your CPF account.

The only place that I know of is the military, which under the OSA, is able to keep secret all medical records of their personnel and previous personnel as the incidents and occurences contain classified information (where the injury occured, who is involved, etc, are all classified).

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Maybe* it is another example of putting the carriage in front of the horses, but maybe if you got the right treatment you would not need more time in said evaluations. The son of a cousin has ADHD, but from what he tells me he got a lot better when they got a doctor that changed his diet (he probably is taking some diet supplements, I did not ask for the specifics).

* science I am no physician, all my comments are empirical at best.

If your school knows...your employer can force disclosure too

Schools are even more lose lipped than doctors

His problem is discrimination....which is not uncommon here due to uninformed dummies filling executive positions

IMO his problem is a that he has avoided treatment due to discrimination.

That is also a common problem here, speaking in general terms. Any kind of mental illness here carries a social stigma, albeit here I do not think laws force disclosure of any records.

Are Viruses the Next Cure for Cancer?:

"The unlikely strategy of using a live virus to treat cancer took yet another step
forward this week with the news that scientists at the Mayo Clinic had treated two
adults with the blood cancer, multiple myeloma, by injecting them with mega-doses
of genetically modified measles virus."

Sure, We'll (Eventually) Beat Cancer. But Can We Afford To?:

"Last year, MD Anderson oncologist Hagop Kantarjian launched a crusade against
current cancer drug prices, decrying the $100,000+ price tag for more than a dozen
therapies launched over the last two years that may come with minimal survival
gains for the median patient – measured in months or even weeks. Other
physicians at Memorial Sloan Kettering, ASCO, and beyond have joined with long
standing critics of the pharmaceutical industry to call for changes to the current
cancer drug pricing system, if not outright cancer drug price controls."

The Drug That Could Reverse Alzheimer's:

"A drug in early animal trials has shown promising results, appearing to reverse the
symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease in mice.

Additionally, in mice, the treatment reduced inflammation in parts of the brain that
are associated with memory and learning, according to a study led by Susan Farr of
Saint Louis University School of Medicine, published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s
Disease."

Rinse it?

No seriously, wash your hands before you eat, and eat better to boost your immune system. Your body will take care of the rest, just the way it did for the past 38 million years.

Speaking of which, I have been throughly deprived of sleep since Saturday, and I having trouble nodding off. My diet for the past few days has absolutely no caffiene, however my appetite decreased to the extent that I only ingest soup. Up till today, I should have been considered to "sleep" (remaining awake but no physical activity, full awareness) only 8-10 hours in 4 days.

It is 12am here and I still can't sleep. Is it considered normal for a person to not sleep after a few days of sleep deprivation?

Vitamin A derivative could help treat obesity, diabetes: study:

"In a discovery that could lead to treatment for obesity and type 2 diabetes,
prevent cardiovascular complications and ease weight management, scientists at
the University of Montreal have identified retinoic acid, a derivative of Vitamin A,
as the magic wand that turns fat cells brown.

Known as the body's "good fat," brown fat is preferable to white fat because of
its ability to generate heat. This is called thermogenesis, and it's what makes an
active metabolism. The mitochondria of brown fat cells are able to rapidly oxidize
fatty acid to produce heat.

To make this happen, researchers say exercise isn't necessary. This means brown
fat cells increase the basal energy metabolism, also called the "resting
metabolism." For example, that friend everyone has who eats like a horse and
never exercises might just have a lot of small brown fat cells."

5 New Methods for Losing Weight You Won't Believe Are Legal:

"The media will never tire of telling us that America is the fattest nation on Earth,
and how the sheer mind-boggling mass of its gargantuan ass is dragging all the
other Western nations into a deadly orbit around obesity. There are thousands of
weight loss solutions available, and they range from "technological snake oil apps"
to "not eating quite so damn much." And then there are these, which all sound like
bizarre torture methods you'd find in a sci-fi flick."
