Blood Sugar Monitoring and Prefilled Insulin Syringes

Blood Sugar Monitoring

Managing your blood sugar is the most important thing you can do to feel your best and prevent long-term complications of diabetes. By monitoring your blood sugar and keeping it within your target range, you'll reduce such risks as eye, kidney, blood vessel and nerve damage.

The Dauphin Clinic Pharmacy offers free monitoring of blood sugar to our customers.

A blood glucose meter is used to test blood glucose at home and determine whether blood glucose levels are in the target range. Testing glucose levels helps put the person with diabetes in control and be more active in managing their condition.

Ask one of our pharmacists about which glucose meter is appropriate for you.

Insulin

Insulin is one of many hormones that helps the body turn the food we eat into energy. It also helps us store energy that we can use later. The Dauphin Clinic Pharmacy offers modern lightweight, disposable, plastic syringes with microfine needles. These syringes are smaller, have finer needles and have special coatings on the needles so injecting is as painless as possible.

Pre-filled syringes

We will pre-fill insulin syringes on request. This is beneficial to diabetic customers with limited manual dexterity or reduced eyesight for whom pulling up the insulin into a syringe with the correct number of units is a difficult, challenging task. We will label the syringe bags with large print for users with reduced vision. Special requests can be accommodated to meet your needs.
