Type 2 diabetes is one of the fastest growing diseases in Canada, with more than 60,000 new cases each year (source: http://goo.gl/p50pg7). However, it is both preventable and fixable, especially in the early phases. Ford’s Family Pharmacy & Wellness Centre provides wellness products to treat both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and any related complications.
We work closely with physicians and review A1C tests, cholesterol, kidney function and blood tests to monitor symptoms as treatment progresses, and adjust medication and care accordingly. For type 1 diabetes, we have had success reducing insulin resistance by as much as 5%. For pre-diabetic or type 2 diabetes, we are able to help patients get control of their symptoms and even lose their diagnosis through a personally tailored medical food, supplement and diet plan.
