If you have just been diagnosed with diabetes you will, understandably, be feeling anxious and need as much help and support as possible. A Boots pharmacist can talk to you about what help is available. Your pharmacist can help you to understand any medicines you may need and how to test your blood sugar (glucose) levels, if your doctor has advised that you should. The pharmacist can advise you on eye checks and how to check your feet, both of which are important if you have diabetes.
Making the right lifestyle changes is an important step to controlling diabetes. Boots can also support you with lifestyle advice such as how to enjoy healthy foods, how to adjust your diet and how to keep active.
