Diabetes - Initial meeting for diabetes monitoring
Diabetes is a chronic disease that requires careful monitoring to prevent long-term complications. Whether it is a recent diagnosis or you've had it for a long time, your pharmacist can advise you and provide you with the right tools. After having received your blood glucose targets from your doctor, a follow up on your results and adjustment to your medication or insulin can be done, depending on various conditions.
You must already have received a prescription for this condition within the past 2 years. If the prescription comes from another pharmacy, make sure you have proof of your prescription (ex.: the prescription label).
Diabetes monitoring (Follow-up meeting)
Diabetes is a chronic disease that requires careful monitoring to prevent long-term complications. After obtaining the treatment targets from the doctor, your pharmacist will review your blood glucose results and your tolerance to your medication. Then, depending on your results and your lifestyle, an adapted intervention plan will be determined. Your medication or insulin can also be adjusted, depending on various conditions. This will enable you to have optimal control of your diabetes.
For diabetic patients, your pharmacist or nurse can teach you the basics of the disease, how your blood glucose meter works and how to take measurements correctly, managing hypoglycaemia, etc. The team will also guide you on the healthy habits to adopt in order to manage your diabetes optimally.
