Living healthy with diabetes requires a balanced diet, regular exercise, stress relief and confidence in your medications. Shoppers Pharmacy offers My Diabetes Coach, a program which can help you safely manage diabetes.
Our My Diabetes Coach is designed to provide participants the most up-to-date information to help you stay healthy and in control with your diabetes.
Free Diabetes Risk Assessments
1 in 3 adults is at risk for diabetes and 9 out of 10 don't know it. Those found to be at high risk will be offered a free blood glucose screening.
Healthy Store Tours
Our program begins with health tips from your Pharmacist, followed by a 90-minute guided walking tour of the store, led by a Registered Dietitian and your Pharmacist.
During the tour you will learn how to:
- Read food labels
- Caculate carbohydrate servings
- Make healthier food choices
- Incorporate snack food into your meal plan
Living Healthy with Diabetes Classes
Our classes cover everything from A to Z about diabetes, including goal setting, blood sugar testing and medication management. The class will be followed by two one-on-one sessions with one of our clinical pharmacists for all attendees. During these visits, the pharmacist will work with you to support your health goals. Blood pressure, A1c, and cholesterol panel evaluation will be provided during these visits, all at no cost to you!
