Involving a Pharmacist in Diabetes Care
Dinno Health's Dr. Silky Kaur, PharmD, RPh, will lead a free, virtual educational event on diabetes care from 7 to 8 p.m., November 16, 2022, on Zoom. Kaur will focus on topics including the importance of a healthy and balanced diet in the prevention and management of diabetes, along with how to utilize and leverage a pharmacist in diabetes care. This includes services that carefully evaluate medication therapies, monitor blood glucose levels and work with other healthcare providers to provide patient-specific recommendations.
Most undiagnosed diabetes cases are Type 2, which is a lifestyle disorder that is commonly due to unhealthy eating patterns, lack of exercise and genes. Other major factors that increase the risk of Type 2 diabetes include obesity, low physical activity and, more importantly, one’s diet and a lack of diabetes awareness. Diabetes is a major cause of complications such as blindness, kidney failure, heart attacks, stroke and lower limb amputation. Becoming aware of the risk of diabetes and/or managing it is essential to preventing these complications.
The Dinno Health family of pharmacies provides exceptional care to its patients and is dedicated to offering enhanced clinical services. November is Diabetes Awareness Month and what better time to learn and increase awareness about diabetes and its management.
