Diabetes Management Clinic

Make the most of your health and wellness.

What is the Diabetes Management Clinic?

If you're living with diabetes, London Drugs Certified Diabetes Educators (CDEs) are your partners. London Drugs has one of the highest proportions of CDEs of all pharmacies in Canada. Our CDEs are available to assist you in managing the disease by guiding you through recommendations for therapy.

Your London Drugs CDEs offer one-on-one consultations specific to your needs. They can discuss blood sugar testing, medication management, preventing low blood sugar, foot care, eating well, getting enough physical activity, and more. Services are available in a variety of languages, including Punjabi, Cantonese, Mandarin, and Korean (at select locations).

London Drugs can also assist you with meter downloads and safe, environmentally friendly diabetes needle disposal.
