Q: Is diabetes a reason for failing a health check?

There's been some talk about the health check.  Has anyone had a personal experience being diabetic?

They are more concerned about things that can be transmitted to other people. Like an STD or Ebola or something like that.

Same here in the UAE.  Diabetes is mostly a disease that can be well-managed.  Thanks for the info.

They will check the box on the medical report for blood sugar level, note the diabetes, ask you if you are taking insulin or another medicine, perhaps note that on the report, and that will be the end of it.

 

Haaike:

Great.  Reminds me of a colleague who recently said:  My mother-in-law is so dumb, she failed her blood test!

I'm not buying the premise, if it were true, eveybody in China would be diabetic.

icnif77:

It is difficult to pinpoint out the causes for the disease, and when number of patients are increasing, cause for that is mostly guessing ...

Stiggs:

I'm no scientist so can't comment on the diabetes claim, but the shitty air is almost definitely playing hell with people lungs and respiratory conditions.

When you do the medical exams in China for resident permits no fasting is required before they draw the blood samples, and the blood glucose levels are not evaluated.  So if they are not asking, then don't tell.

 

If you voluntarily disclose you're diabetic, that may show up on the information that is transmitted to the medical insurance provider by the medical testing service, and the diabetes could be treated at a pre-existing condition if you need medical treatments because of that.  The medical insurance system in China is far from transparent.

 

As the others said, the medical exams are screening for STDs, TB and other infectious diseases, health conditions that point towards imminent hospitalizations, and other very serious health problems.  That's not to say diabetes or high blood pressure or being overweight aren't significant health issues, but they typically are not exclusionary factors for employment eligibility.

A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
