Pharmacists Play An Essential Role In A Diabetes Care Team

The Pharmacy at Orange Grove will work with your Diabetes Doctor to help and advise in controlling the effects of Diabetes.

“A 2018 study, published in the Journal of Managed Care, found that pharmacists involvement as part of a diabetes care team, not only improves patient outcomes, but can help prevent complications and reduce costs.”

Pharmacists also play an important role in medication adherence, which is more likely when you know what the medication is expected to do, how to take it, what adverse effects to possibly expect.

This is part of the core belief of the service at Orange Grove Pharmacy so customers can ask any questions, and understand their medication.

Free blood sugar and blood pressure tests are always available at the pharmacy at orange grove.

Insulin For Type 1 Diabetes

Plus Diabetes Medications from your Doctors Prescription.

Biguanides: These diabetes tablets reduce blood sugar levels by reducing the production of glucose in the liver. Commonly known as metformin.

Sulfonylureas: These diabetes tablets are prescribed by diabetes doctors in order to bring blood sugar levels to normalcy. These diabetes medications work by releasing insulin from the pancreas.

Meglitinide Derivatives: These diabetes tablets also work by releasing insulin from the pancreas. These are prescribed by diabetes doctors to be taken after meals in order to reduce blood sugar levels by stimulating the release of insulin.

Alpha-glucosidase inhibitors: These diabetes drugs work by delaying the absorption of carbohydrates during digestion and thereby reduce postprandial blood glucose levels.

Thiazolidinediones: These diabetes drugs work by sensitizing the muscles and tissues of the body to insulin. This leads to better absorption of glucose in the body thereby reducing blood sugar levels.

GLP-1agonists: GLP-1 agonists stands for Glucagon-like peptide-1 agonists. They work by mimicking the effects of naturally occurring Incretin glucagon-like peptide1. This leads to stimulation of insulin release from the pancreas.

DPP-Inhibitors: DPP-4 inhibitors are a class of diabetes medications that work in multiple modes. They work by delaying gastric emptying, increasing glucose-dependent insulin secretion, and so are prescribed by diabetes doctors in order to reduce post eating , blood sugar levels.

SGLT-2Inhibitors: SGLT-2 inhibitors stands for sodium glucose transporter 2. This diabetes medication works by reducing the reabsorption of glucose from the kidneys. This results in releasing more glucose through urine and thus reducing blood sugar levels.

Bile acid sequestrants: Bile acid sequestrants are actually lipid lowering medications that are used in order to reduce blood sugar levels and improve glycemic control. A common form of bile acid sequestrants is Colesevelam

IV Nutrient Therapy At Orange Grove

Nutrition Therapy is a form of IV treatment that supplies the body with necessary vitamins and minerals, to replenish deficiencies, or aid in healing. The nutrients get delivered through a liquid solution from an IV line.

IV Nutrient Therapy is one of the most exciting wellness treatments that will replenish your body with hydration and nutrients, increase energy levels, slow the signs of aging, improve muscle recovery, and boost stamina.

With IV Vitamin therapy, the minerals and vitamins are administered into the body through the veins.

Every other week is probably the most ideal time period for most people, to do a 30 minute IV Therapy.

The fluids received during IV therapy last a few hours, but the vitamins can last days, to weeks in your body.

The IV nutrients get into the bloodstream and around the body faster as they are not limited by how quickly they can be absorbed, as is the case with vitamin tablets.

Although you may eat a balanced diet, you can have deficiencies if you do not absorb vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other essential micronutrients properly.

Health conditions such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, fatigue, and multiple sclerosis, can be affected, by nutrient deficiencies.

Our nutrient requirements at age 30 differ from those at age 40, 50, and beyond. Absorption also becomes more difficult, as we age.
