CVS/pharmacy Helps Patients Manage Diabetes Care
Date:11/3/2008

Educational resources and special product offers available in store during

American Diabetes Month in November

WOONSOCKET, R.I., Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- CVS/pharmacy, America's largest retail pharmacy, is educating patients about managing and preventing diabetes during American Diabetes Month in November. CVS is also offering money-saving specials during the month on products for patients with diabetes.

Nearly 24 million children and adults in the U.S. -- almost 8% of the population -- have diabetes and 5.7 million people may have the disease and not even know it. Last year, 1.6 million new cases of diabetes were diagnosed in people ages 20 and older. Another 57 million people in the U.S. have pre-diabetes, a condition in which their blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.

By working in collaboration with the American Diabetes Association, which is asking Americans during Diabetes Month, "Why Should You Care About Diabetes?" CVS/pharmacy has created a free educational resource booklet, Diabetes: Solutions for Life, which is available at all CVS/pharmacy locations nationwide. This comprehensive educational booklet provides patients with information on diabetes symptoms, risk factors, successful disease management and ways to prevent diabetes through healthy choices. The booklet also features over $100 in money-saving offers on over-the-counter products, meters and test strips, and healthy food items through the CVS ExtraCare program.

In addition, because patients with diabetes may take several medications at a time to treat their disease and any side effects of their therapy, pharmacists play a critical role in helping patients monitor and manage their diabetes.

"It is important for patients to know that their CVS pharmacist is a resource in the development of their diabetes treatment plan," said Papatya Tankut, RPh, Vice President of Pharmacy Professional
