Blood Sugar Monitoring
A person with diabetes should talk with one of our pharmacists about which model of glucose meter is appropriate for them. Anyone using a glucose meter should receive proper training so that they can test their blood glucose levels properly. Questions to ask our pharmacists include: the size of the drop of blood needed, the type of blood glucose strips to use, how to check if the meter is accurate (the meter should be checked at least once a year), how to code the meter, and how to clean the meter and when to test.
We offer safe disposal of diabetic needles and expired/unwanted medications.
