DIABETES

Diabetes is a chronic but manageable disease that affects over two million Australians. However, there are many people who are left undiagnosed and unaware of their condition, because it’s often detected when it’s too late.

We assist and support diabetes patients. Our whole health approach includes advice on medication, nutrition and lifestyle factors such as pregnancy, travelling with insulin, instruction on diabetic devices and advice for carers.

We have a certified Diabetes Educator now in-store at our North Geelong pharmacy. Our Diabetes Educator will work with you to provide you with ways on how to make positive lifestyle changes and incorporate healthier choices into your life, to manage your diabetes more effectively. Services provided by our Diabetes Educator may be subsidised by Medicare. Please call our North Geelong pharmacy for session times and further information.

Registration to the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) is free and open to all Australians diagnosed with diabetes.  NDSS products are available at all Community Care Chemist stores at subsidised prices. We also provide invaluable information and support services to people suffering from this disease.

Make sure you undergo a diabetes screening at Community Care Chemist North Geelong as a vital part of your health and wellness regime. It’s a simple blood test that can be performed in our pharmacy. We can calibrate and check the performance of blood sugar testing devices for you as well.

I just love this chemist and all the staff. You’re all so helpful… I have been coming here for over 40 years and the service has always been exceptional.
