Pharmaco Diabetes has also developed an online training portal for healthcare professionals to assist in learning about the latest meters whenever it suits them. Many pharmacists have already opted to use this platform to be trained on the CareSens Dual meter. A new training module on CareSens N Premier meter will soon be available.
“We are very pleased with this uptake - having at least one person in each pharmacy fully trained is the best way for pharmacies to support their customers,” he says.
Pharmaco has been the sole supplier of blood glucose meters in New Zealand since 2012. The new range demonstrates the company’s commitment to continue innovating and introducing new technology.
Always read the pack insert/user manual, follow the manufacturer’s instructions, and the advice provided by health care professionals. TAPS DA1827IM
1 – Diabetes is the result of the body not creating enough insulin to keep blood glucose (sugar) levels in the normal range. Everyone needs some glucose in their blood, but if it’s too high it can damage your body over time.
Type 1 diabetes is an ‘auto-immune’ condition. Basically the body sets up an attack against the cells within it that make insulin. These cells are called beta cells and are isolated in the pancreas. The result is that the body does not produce any insulin (or very little) – (Diabetes NZ, www.diabetes.org.nz, accessed October 2017)
Type 2 diabetes is a condition in which your body isn't able to use insulin properly, resulting in high blood glucose levels. This can lead to a wide range of health problems if not treated (healthnavigator.org.nz, accessed 2017). 2 - For further information, please visit: www.pharmacodiabetes.co.nz
