Diabetes Education

If you have diabetes, you know how challenging it can be to manage your disease. At Halethorpe Pharmacy, our diabetes educators can help you live a healthier and fuller life. Our programs are fully accredited by the American Association of Diabetes Educators. We focus on seven self-care behaviors:

  • Healthy eating
  • Being active
  • Monitoring
  • Taking medication
  • Problem solving
  • Healthy coping
  • Reducing risks

At Halethorpe Pharmacy, the goal of our diabetes education is to help people with diabetes practice these behaviors every day. Doing so leads to lower blood sugar (glucose), blood pressure and cholesterol. Most people with diabetes know self-management is important, but many find it overwhelming. Our diabetes education can help you by designing a specific plan that includes the tools and support to help make self-care behaviors easier to follow.

Dr. Comfort™ Therapeutic Shoes for Diabetes Patients

We understand how important proper foot care is to diabetes management, due to the increased risk of serious foot complications (such as ulcers and sores) that can occur from the use of ill-fitting shoes. These foot problems, which can cause infection and lead to possible amputation, are the most common complications of diabetes that require hospitalization. Professionally fitted shoes for persons with diabetes can reduce the risk of foot complications.

The trained staff at Halethorpe Pharmacy can perform in-store fittings for our patients with diabetes. By taking preventive measures, it is possible to avoid foot complications and to maintain an independent, active lifestyle. This is why Dr. Comfort therapeutic shoes and insoles are an excellent first step toward better foot health. Medicare A and B covers one pair of therapeutic shoes with three pairs of personally molded orthotic shoe inserts (to be charged throughout the year). If you have Medicare A and B primary and Medigap or supplemental Medicare insurance, you will likely have no out-of-pocket expense. We can take care of all the billing paperwork for you. Call us at (410) 247-3344 to learn more.
