To keep an eye on your diabetes
Whether you have prediabetes, diabetes or are newly diagnosed, many tests exist to ensure your blood sugar is well under control and that your treatment is working well.

A1C Test

For pre-diabetics and diabetics, A1C is an important test that indicates if your diabetes is well managed, over a short period of time.

This finger prick blood test takes 5 minutes and can be done at any time. Taking this test will help you adjust your treatment to avoid diabetes-related complications. 

Blood Sugar Readings

You can get your blood sugar readings at your pharmacy. It only requires a quick needle prick on your fingertip.

You can then discuss your results with your pharmacist and learn about the best practices to get accurate readings.

Self-Monitoring Education

Monitoring your blood glucose is an important part of managing your diabetes.

If you wish to use a blood glucose monitor at home, your pharmacist can suggest the best one for your needs and explain how you can use it.
