Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism affecting the way the body uses digested food. Most of the food you eat is broken down into glucose, the form of sugar in the blood. When you are diabetic you either do not produce insulin, you produce too little insulin, or your body does not respond to the insulin appropriately.
There are three types of Diabetes:
- Type I Diabetes: Diabetes occurring at birth
- Type II Diabetes: Diabetes which occurs later in life
- Gestational Diabetes: Diabetes developed while pregnant
While there is no cure for Diabetes, there are ways to control your blood sugars. Diet, exercise, medications and, if prescribed, insulin injections are ways to stay healthy. It is important to check your blood sugars often. That's why Thompson Pharmacy sponsors Diabetes Awareness and Free Meter days with a Certified Diabetes Nurse Educator and a Certified Dietician to educate you on the latest diabetes treatment options. Our pharmacists are always available to answer your questions and offer advice about any of your medications or diabetes related supplies. With careful control and support from those who specialize in Diabetes care, you can live an active, healthy life with Diabetes.
