According to the CDC, just under half of the United States adult population is expected to develop diabetes during their lifetime. Not only does diabetes significantly contribute to healthcare costs, it also puts you at risk for many other health complications such as kidney failure and blindness.
Bay Street Pharmacy and Home Health Care wants to work with patients who have received this diagnosis and to prevent those “pre-diabetics” from becoming diabetic. We consistently provide counseling, blood glucose testing & information, billing of all supplies related to diabetes and the ability to download results from your meter. We carry a full line of all diabetic meters, strips, and lancets. We will gladly accept assignment from your insurance so you don’t have to worry about it.
The Sweet Spot
The “Sweet Spot” is our name for a time of education, fun and fellowship held every month on the 3rd Thursday at 8AM at Sebastian River Medical Center. This class features a different topic every month that is relevant to patients who current have diabetes, friends or family members of patients with diabetes, or those who are trying to gain education to prevent diabetes. Primarily geared toward type 2 diabetes, our class focuses on subjects such as healthy cooking, exercise, complications of diabetes, and even occasionally features a local guest speaker from our area physician community or other health professionals.
Classes are sponsored and run by Theresa Tolle, pharmacist and owner of Bay Street Pharmacy and typically last about 1 hour. Many of the members of the support group have attended for several years and they readily share their knowledge and experiences with one another.
We would love to have you join us at this informative monthly gathering! There is no charge to attend and we only ask that you RSVP if possible so we can save you a seat! Call 772-589-2043 to RSVP or to get more information about our upcoming topics for the year.
