Diabetes Management Review
Free review service
At TerryWhite Chemmart Nelson Bay we provide Diabetic Management Review service. This is a 20 minute session we do in our store.
It is provided as a free service as it is subsidised by the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS).
What is diabetes?
Diabetes is a condition in which there is too much glucose (a type of sugar) in the blood because the body is unable to use it properly.
Diabetes is generally divided into two categories.
Type 1 diabetes, which is often referred to as ‘juvenile diabetes’ because it most commonly begins during childhood or adolescence.
And Type 2 diabetes, which usually occurs later in life and is more common in people who are overweight.
