Blood Sugar Readings at Lockwood Pharmacy

Diabetes is a common condition that causes the level of sugar (glucose) in the blood to become too high, because the body is not able to effectively respond to the insulin produced. This can be managed by taking medication and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Symptoms of diabetes include:

  • Urinate (pee) a lot, often at night.
  • Are very thirsty.
  • Lose weight without trying.
  • Are very hungry.
  • Have blurry vision.
  • Have numb or tingling hands or feet.
  • Feel very tired.
  • Have very dry skin.

If you are suffering from any of the above symptoms, or are generally concerned about Diabetes, you can test your blood sugar levels at home with a Blood Glucose monitor available from Lockwood Pharmacy

Our friendly staff at Lockwood Pharmacy are all trained to use and interpret blood sugar readings. We can liaise with your GP/Practice Nurse should you require your results forwarding on for further testing. You can feel confident with our staff when receiving diabetes related healthcare advice and blood sugar interpretation, and if you require help in using your own blood glucose monitoring equipment or you require new equipment for home monitoring, we will only be too happy to provide you with all of the help and guidance that you need.
