Want to Prevent Type 2 Diabetes? You Have Options

Your local pharmacist and Medicare’s new program can help prevent diabetes

(RxWiki News) If you want to lower your risk of type 2 diabetes, you have options.

Your local pharmacy is a great resource for you and your health. Ask your local pharmacist today if they offer any wellness classes for diabetes management. This option is great if you are trying to lower your risk of type 2 diabetes, manage diabetes or care for a loved one with diabetes. This is also an option for those who don’t meet the age requirement of the program detailed below.

Another option is Medicare’s Diabetes Prevention Program (Medicare DPP). If you are 65 years or older and have Medicare Part B, this program may be an option for you. It’s a free, year-long program. This program, recognized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has been shown to reduce type 2 diabetes risk by more than 70 percent.

The program was created for people who have pre-diabetes or are at risk for type 2 diabetes but who do not already have the condition. Speak with your health care provider to see whether you’re eligible.

Regardless of the program you choose, it’s important to remember that these types of programs are not quick fixes. Instead, they will teach you new habits for better food choices and getting more physical activity in your daily routine. They can even help you cope with life challenges and stress.

Its a really nice place to shop the people are polite and fast I would suggest it

This is the best Pharmacy I have ever dealt with. They are so nice.


Great staff, great service, always staying up to date on ways to better help you get you medicine quicker, easier, and for your kids to take it. Rather it be the taste or making it in to a gummy. They are my opinion the best place hands down, to go to for to get your medicine.
